It has been two months I am in india. There were so many things happened; simple one to complex one. If I write it down in written form, it will be a book, I guess. Unfortunately, I am not a writer, so I can not write it all.
It is still clear in my mind till now, the first hours of my time in India. I arrived by plane at 00.00 (midnight). There were two lovely Indonesian friends had been waiting me to pick me up. Then, we went to EFLU, Hyderabad. There was a very good planning, they would drop me off to the EFLU hostel (international dormitory for students) at the night. So I could rest my body well, cz there would be many stuffs to do in the morning. Finally, at 2.00 am, we got to the EFLU hostel, but I could not come in. the officer said that there was no room. it got me shocked, cz it had been clarified before that there was a space for me. For your record, there was no hotel near EFLU. Fortunately,, Allah always helps me all the time.
then i went to my friend’s flat and relaxed my very tired body there. unfortunately, i could not sleep at all till the morning came. nothing i could do. i was so excited and curious about my new environment. in the morning, my friends that picked me up and i went to the near railway station (read: Secunderabad) to pick up another new indonesian that had just come. he used the train from Bangalore to Hyderabad cz his flight was Air Asia. we lost him. the station was too big (i was still wondering at the time). we looked for him for hours in the station that was so crowded and strange smell. we did not find him and came back to the flat.
i felt so tired and sleepy, but i had to report my coming and did some tests for joining report. while i was going to go, there was calling from the missing indonesian student. he was in the station. then some my friends picked him up. i went to ICCR office to report. it was not as simple as i thought. i was asked to do many things. as a result, my administrative report finished in between 15-20 days. those days were the hardest days in india so far,,, but Thanks God, i passed it with so many unforgettable experiences.
