Everything was planned
Two months in advance, I knew I was going to Germany
Friends of my father had already sent their children ahead of us
At first I was very happy
Because I like football and Germany has a fantastic football team.

My mother did not want me to go
She was very afraid for me, as the route is dangerous
I was unsure and told my friends nothing at first
Because perhaps it would not work out.

My family came to say good-bye
I had prepared everything
Had bought all the things I needed for the journey
I could not sleep.

I set off with my uncle
My cousin was supposed to come too
But the money
Was too little.

I did not take my favourite things with me
And now
If I could turn back the clock
I would take photos of everything.
