As people already asked if I was still here (or already there...) and of course, I want to let you now...

I am still here!

- nevous, excited and a bit sad (to leave my boyfriend here)...

but my plane leaves tonight (very late)...

my suitcase (actually it's the first time I am travelling with a *suitcase*...) is almost packed, I have instructions on how to find my flat in Ras al Khaimah ("the house is mud-colored and has no entrance-door"....?!?!) and my lecturer at uni already reassured me he would leave his mobile switched on day and night in case something happens (like I get lost or something... ;))... I am even prepared in case the government down there blocks ipernity... :)

I also got enough information (of people from uni that have been down there) on how to behave as a woman (No, I don't have to wear a veil...!) and on where to eat... as well as a warning to be aware of scorpions in my flat... 

apart from the scorpions the only thing that really worries me is my thesis... if I will get all the data I need, if everything will work out as it's meant to... Well, I will see...

I still don't know where I will blog regularly... So if you understand German and if you are interessted, have a look at ringelsocken.blogspot.com

I won't have internet in my flat, but still I'll try to come here regularly to see what's going on... :-)
