More pain in my lower right arm.
More black tea and black tobacco cigarettes.
Matthias and I bought a large pack of Darjeeling.
We’re running low on cash so we also bought a stash of shag for rollies.
Our purchase decisions make sense and I like having a partner to share stuff with.
Thursday was a dark day for us.
Nobody was called out of the cell for transport.
We were the only ‘dry’ cell this week on the entire floor.
We daydream a lot on those days.
“What will you do first when you are in the West?”
“Find a job of course and then travel on every weekend.”
“Buy a ticket for Schalke.”
“Open air festivals.”
Of course we have no idea.
Of course we know that this will be a tough new life.
But dreaming helps to cope with the frustration that nobody was called out.
I master my chess game now.
Unbeaten in the last 20 matches.
It’s great for networking and to stay sharp.
I repeat the 1984 world cup Kasparow v Karpow matches.
It’s the only section that is probably not fabricated in the papers.
There is a true chess champion one story below us they say: unbeaten in a year.
