As I posted before, most of our belongings got destroyed while shipping them from Beijing to Germany at the end of last year. It became not really clear how this happened, as there were at least three companies involved in the sea freight. It is not value added by a service, when at the end of the value chain stands an insurance company. But luckily the financial settlement went through reasonably well. So, here we are: value destroyed, and price refunded - a bundle of cash in our hands. First of course, we bought the things we needed. They are actually not many. All our destroyed items have been well selected and carefully maintained. They were never our "stuff" only, but more of a collection of items. You cannot just go shopping and buy them again. Specially, as we both hate shopping anyways. But as books are closed, here and there comes a piece which is special and new, and another one which is a successor. Feibai bought me back my camera bag. Very happy with it. And soon, it will also have seen the world, as we are just now exploring it. The rest of the compensation, we decided to spend on memories and not on "souvenirs".
