In FreeCuvry the winter is finally arrived.
With about -10 degrees and totally covered by snow, Cuvry appears white and silent, everything seems going slower, the camp is going to lethargy. The majority of the people who built the houses between this summer and this autumn haven’t yet every kind of stove inside, and the walls are still not enough isolated, full of gaps that allow the wind and the cold come in easy. So they make every day a big fire in the common kitchen, near the Schlesisches Straße entry, beside the library, and spend time there together. Some of them sleep there in the night, beside the big fire drum, cause in their house is too cold.
We remember that cold, when we started to build our home we slept since the beginning in Cuvry, our walls were just plastic sheets. We had no stove, and no space inside to be warm and relax, the only thing we could do that time to not feel the cold was working every day hard until we would have built four walls and a roof. But now a day we can feel the warm of our home.
We are always happy to receive visits, and although our home is not so big, we always try to make place for everybody.
Two weeks ago for example we where inside 8 people, very close each other 😉 Yuki cooked miso soup and rice for everybody, it was nice, we never thought we could be so many inside!
One friend who comes often to visit us is Sasha. Two days ago he brought some food for dinner and we invited also Lukas and Manu, who were that evening in the common kitchen around the fire. Yuki cooked also this time – actually he cooks always because he cooks much better than me:) – he made miso soup with his super special meat-balls, and rice of course, as a good Japanese.
Sasha is very nice person, he has always such many interesting stories to tell, he lived so many different and weird situation, he know a lot of funny things and he did a lot of strange jobs. So when he starts to speak, you know he will tell you something special, and you can just listen to him.
In any how we enjoy to be together our friends in our home, and we hope to receive always several visits.
