“I must have ended up on the wrong planet. Everything here is so strange.”

I searched for anything already said to explain this something inside me. I was not successful because none of them where able to give me any consolation.

Probably, the treacherous city will give me the answers to my yet-to-be verbalized questions. Probably, losing myself in the false gaiety of Dinagyang will help. ‘Till Monday everyone.
