I left Mary’s room and went back to Ugoo.
Afam was there drinking beer when I came.
” Na inside that Benin girl room you day”
asked while smiling.
I was surprised but didn’t show it.
He said I was a fast guy. He had been
the girl for two days now but had not seen
the opportunity to make any move.
*Lecture: Opportunities are scattered all
around us. We see it every minute of every
hour. The problem is making up our minds.
Afam had been seeing this girl since two
days back, what opportunity was he
for. I guess he was afraid to fail and that is
the biggest obstacle to trial. Afraid to fail*
I told him that it was the girl who asked me
to come and be with her. She was lonely
needed someone to talk to.
I, Solo, the messiah had granted her that
wish and we only talked. Nothing else I
We finished the beer and I told Afam that I
would be going back to Brandenburg in the
morning. He said it was a good idea and
I should find out what other people were
doing in that Area.
I slept in Ugoo’s room and in the Morning, I
called Afam and told him that I needed
for transport. He said he had no money
him and asked that I wait until the evening.
Instead of doing nothing the whole day, I
decided to follow Moses, a guy I met in the
same HEIM, down to a place where they
worked. It was a warehouse were Business
men from Nigeria load their goods for
we got a job to load a 40FT container with
Used fridges and freezers. Moses asked his
colleagues that I joined them.
We loaded the container and I got 50 Euro
my share. It was enough for my transport
since it was weekend.
(Weekend tickets were usually cheaper in
Germany. There was a ticket also called the
Abend ticket which takes effect from 5pm
friday to 3am, Sunday morning.)
There was one other businessman who had
bought radiator and A/C fans. I helped him
arrange them and he gave me another 20
When I got back in the evening, Afam had
come to Ugoo’s HEIM like he said.
I called Mary and he asked me to come to
When I got there, I told her I would be
that evening and that I would invite her
We chatted for sometime before Afam
Afam gave me 30 Euro and asked me to
the Abend ticket. (Abend means Evening).
We went together to the ESSEN CENTRAL
STATION where I boarded the Inter
City.Express train (ICE, the fastest of all
in Europe at 450KM/h)
We used a different route to Berlin through
Wolfsburg and Spandau. I stopped at Berlin
Zoo Garten station and entered a smaller
