Transnational family life in the times of Corona
One of the first things I do in the morning, after getting myself a glass of water, is chat with my sister in law. Most days it is not really chatting, since she will have written her mesages to me at 2:30 in the morning (CET) and I will write mine around 8, when she is already busy again preparing lunch. My sister in law lives in Calcutta and I live in Berlin, both born and raised in the countries we live in. The 4 hour time lag between those adds to my privilege if you see it as such, since I usually receive her messages first and start my day feeling connected and blessed by the emotional support of a family member whom I also call my friend.
