Doppelgänger Germany Integration schöne menschen

15 Für 15: Frauen Treffen

The weather has been amazingly warm the past days and it’s been totally cool to not wear heavy jackets and snoods….not that I don’t mind the cold, seeing as winter is my fave season!

Anyways, I finally got to attend a group meet up that took place in köln. To be honest, I was completely skeptical about going for it cos it was expected to begin around 18:00 uhr and I hadn’t planned on staying out late(say nothing Clara).

So, all dressed up(not in my Sunday best tho!) We all met at the Hbf. I stood all alone by the Douglas beauty store, worrying Gorgeousness with messages out of boredom as I wasn’t certain who was there for it. I did see a girl and asked if she too was for it but no. Later, I noticed a bunch of girls and one of them came up to me and said it was OK to join their circle if I was part of the treffen which I thought was ganz nett. I must have looked lost and maybe slightly a tad pissed as the organisers arrived late.

I did not get a lot of pictures though cos the table we got didn’t give room for easy movement and the food….. Well, my first time having Ethiopian anything and I guess it’s an acquired taste maybe cos I really didn’t like any of it. But it can go down in history that I have definitely tried injera.

The girls were amazing company and worried I wasn’t getting in on the chats since my German was limited but I didn’t mind really. It was totally nice to connect with other Africans even though they basically grew up in Germany. I think it’s a cool way to integrate really. Sure I’m not much of a night owl and would rather spend my weekend reading a romance novel or watching a movie all over again but I think once in a while, hanging out isn’t bad at all.

Would I go for another meet up? Warum nicht! Hopefully nothing so late and nothing Ethiopian!

  • Clara

    Aww I’m glad you met the girls. It defo helps with integration… I liked the ethiopian food I used to have at my friend house, even though I thought chicken and egg together in the doro wat was a bit mean (mother and unborn baby lol!). Maybe the resto wasn’t good? Or we just have different taste buds haha.

    I hope you meet up with them again soon.

    Have a lovely week and see you soon meine Liebe. XXX

    • LMAO only you Clara would think of that Hahaha mean indeed. Different taste bud I would say because I didn’t like any of it at all but then again I’m basically simple when it comes to food. And injera ain’t simple in my opinion lol.

  • New Dawn.

    Glad you had a bit of fun, though you don’t like the food. I am not a night owl myself. I rather stay indoors and read or watch movies.

    • Oh I’m with you on that nitty. These days, I freak out once it starts to get dark and I’m still outside. Gimme movies, popcorn and chips, toss in some bottles of soda and my social life is moonwalking

    Hey, nice post. I’ve been looking for a way to reach you. Please could you send an email to my mail ASAP please? Need to get something across. Thank you.

    I’m jelly!!!! I wish I would have been there with you. That looks and sounds like fun. I haven’t had any Ethiopian food. I’ve had Nigerian food at my friend’s house in Solingen (not far from Cologne) and it was amazing. I can’t wait to have some Nigerian food again.

    Between you, my friend Amaka, my friend Sarah and everyone else that seems to be around the Cologne area, I almost want to relocated to Cologne.

    I’m glad you had fun. Take a nap before you go out and I’m sure there is something on the Ethiopian menu you can find that you like. 😉

    The weather has been amazing here as well bit windy but better than normal.
    Winter used to be my favourite season as well until this year my body rejected the cold, worse than before. Did you go to a blog meet up?

    The food looks lovely, I think I need a bloggers meet up as well. Happy you had a good time. x

    • not really a blog meet up, more like a hair Group meet up and yes the Food does look good and i ate it to fulfill all righteousness plus as a cheapskate, no Cent shall be wasted! thanks!

  • Adaeze

    She’s back!
    I’m glad you had fun and making a hearty attempt at integration. Your comments about the food made me smile, I don’t adapt to new food easily and I’m sure I’d have the same experience.
