INDIA

because people are (still) very friendly and hospitable

because everyone smiles at you and talks to you and you will never feel alone

because it is very cheap and even filmmakers can afford stuff

because the noise and the honks blend into the colour so you feel like in an action film 24/7 (ear plugs are a must)

because when you are begging for a sunny day here, there you sit on a beach in Goa and eat roasted sweetcorn and banana milkshake

because it teaches you to be happy with little

and more, but i think this is enough… now go to india (season is november-march)

In a recent discussion about the education system in Germany, I found out 2 school-children per day commit suicide because of their grades and fear to disappoint teachers/parents. Being such a sensitive subject, the media is not allowed to cover such news stories. It’s sad…

But actually my post is about university courses. University is bloody expensive these days in most countries, so here is an alternative:

Death Row

Most people do not know when and how they will die. Death Row inmates do. They are told the exact day, hour and minute of their death, including all the precise details, procedures and rituals of their execution.

Death Row is a documentary series written and directed by legendary feature filmmaker Werner Herzog, telling the fascinating and controversial story of crime and the death penalty. Over the period of a year, Herzog interviewed inmates in America as they awaited their death, uncovering brutal stories of rape and murder.

 

… and because I just can’t get enough of Herzog’s narrative voice.
