I cannot believe it but it is true. May 24. A bit longer than a month from now, and Bonn will be gone. It was too too quick, I can hardly grasp it.

This last period has been hectic. Preparing the move, finishing all reports of last jobs, preparing whatever possible for the next ones, preparing my visit to Brazil, packing, sorting out, buying, selling, cleaning, washing, enjoying the beautiful days here.

This morning was the second big check at the tropical medicine clinic. Always good to know that everything is fine, HIV still negative, and cholesterol just at the edge... wir brauchen mehr Bewegung - we need to move more, says the doctor. Vaccines against polio, typhoid and rabies.

This afternoon, picnic with a group of Brazilian women, at the Rheinaue park. We hope to play frescobol, although the weather forecast says "thunderstorm" (in German, Gewitter)!
