Lisbon Portugal: I had left Berlin Germany
and landed in this strange city called Lisbon.
It was in a bid to acquire European
residence permit. The laws in Germany says
that one must either have a Child with a
German woman or marry a german citizen
before you get their papers. Some of us who
never wanted anything like a child or a
woman to tie us down in one part of this big
universe chose to look elsewhere for the

Another reason was that the German police
were closing in on me. They had found some
illegal drugs in my room and had fixed a
date for my court appearance. It was time to

I had the money afterall, so i can afford to
spend even 20,000 Euro just to get the
papers rather than one woman holding me

Unu''. An Igbo sentence that translated to ''
Greetings unto you''.

They welcomed me warmly and i rightly
guessed that they were anticipating my

played their poker game.
One hour later, i told Francis that i wanted
to go outside and look around the city.

new city.
