Day 15

When do you know you are homesick?

When you are sitting in Geneva watching an Attenborough sort of program about penguins in Australia. In German.

No. That’s not all, not quite.

When you are sitting in Geneva watching a German Attenborough sort of program about penguins in Australia and you think you recognise one of them.

No. That’s not all, not quite either.

When you are sitting in Geneva watching a German Attenborough sort of program about penguins in Australia, you think you recognise one of them and you wave at it. And the reason it doesn’t wave back, you think, isn’t that the penguin doesn’t recognise you, but that the director won’t let it.

That’s homesick, wouldn’t you say?
