Somehow I stumbled across this story. Read the first paragraphs, and wasn’t able to stop. It’s long, but I didn’t notice. All along I was thinking «What a total nightmare to be in! Unfathomable!» I tried to envision myself being in her situation, but I couldn’t.
I, too, moved to another country, I don’t know too many people, but I speak the language and am perfectly able to get around in society. This story made me thankful for little things like being able to take the bus, speak to authorities and so on. Imagine not knowing where you live … not being able to tell your address! They had to find it via Google Streetview!
Please, if you have a few minutes to spare; read it!
