Journal Entry: Day 171

Montpellier, France,

It has been now 5 days since I am staying in Montpellier, the city where I grew up in. And now I am re-discovering it once again after 11 years ago. I am staying here only for this month of September, time will go fast.
After 5 days I am now completely accustomed to my life here. I have to say it is easier to do so when you already know the place a little, and moreover, when people speak your mother tongue, there is no confusion. Although this direct interpretation of my surroundings has some reverse effect on my psyche as I am easily getting back to similar emotional states I was when I was living here. I do not like much this sensation as I can sense some kind of “demons of the past” which are unpleasant feelings or emotions I thought I discarded from my life. However with time and experiences, these do not impact me much nowadays, I believe it is good to witness and understand where I come from so I can much better understand where I am and where I am going to.

I have not slept well these last few days, there are in fact more mosquitoes here than many places I have been to these past years, I need to find a solution for that.

As I already know the place, I feel I could be much more productive in my work here as I would lose less time in discovering the places. However, there are many people I would like to see. For example this week I will see more of my family with my brother and nieces and also some old friends I have not seen for a while.
