Have to go down and then, there were other people also. Not only me. We were I think six, seven people. Also of different nationalities. Iraqi, Nepalese, me. So mixed nationalities. Police said: “Look, this is the first time, I see you ‘dadada..’ But if you return, you will be put in jail directly.” Ok, panic. Aah this person called me: “Where are you?”, that was in English, he was Pakistani. “Yah, look, he saw passport and maybe not real passport, that I don’t know what you have given me.” “No! I gave you a good passport.” I said: “Now, I could not pass, what can I do?” “Wait, I will come to…” Again it took two months.
