diary entry

Schon die ganze Welt bereist ich hab'
Vom Abend- zum Morgenland
Vom Süd- zum Nordkapp

Doch nirgendwo fand ich einen Ort
wie an diesem Strand
Ich wünsch' mir, ich müsst' nicht fort

Frieden und Liebe vereint hier sind
Gedanken im Winde blau treiben
alle Sorgen verfliegen geschwind

Auf Reisen nun wieder ich geh'
Lieber würd' hier ich bleiben
Bald wieder an diesem Platz ich steh'

Habt Dank, ihr Leut, für eure Freundschaft zum Gast
Im Herzen mein, mach' immer hier ich Rast

we went to the city of Liepaja for two days. there we found our peace of mind. we didn't do much. we didn't talk much. each of us was floating in his own mind, in his own thoughts. nevertheless we felt very comfortable with each other. old friends. in German there is a saying that an old friend is like an old pair of shoes.

Alla, I am thankful to you and your country, for that you gave me asylum. Now I feel strong again. Now I can go back to the even colder Russia and continue my studies of the language.

In Liepaja we went to the beautiful snow-covered beach. All white. We wanted to see and feel the water. Hence, we decided to walk a bit over the ice and sit down. Smoke a cigarette. We enjoyed the warm sunlight on our cold faces. We sat there and smoked, like two old and rusty friends.

This wonderful feeling of friendship, what would the world be without it. Thank you, all of you, for giving me a harbour where I can stay. I find, I am the luckiest person in the world, for having such true friends.

We returned to the beach. Suddenly the ice cracked. My foot broke through the ice and dived into cold Baltic Sea water. Nothing else happened. We walked on carefully.

For the rest of my impressions from Liepala, see the pics :-).
