Let me out!

There is no getting out of that place! It's the second time I fail hitch-hiking away from Amsterdam! And this time it was a freaking masquerade...

First gas station. Walking distance from the tram.

4 people on the road

Four friends left hitchhiking and one just got stranded hopelessly (again). Guess who? Sitarane first send me a weird txt: "Just left the station (2h!). Two guys from Hamburg wanted 200 euro for the trip and a woman convinced them to take me for free. And gave me 20 euro... What?" And now he just called. The guys dropped him somewhere at the airport, which is in the other direction and just before it is getting dark now, Julien still wants to make it back to Hamburg... How would the others be making it Today? Fleur to Metz, and Marc and Kasya South to Eindhoven...

Greetings to casa!

After that somehow complicated trip from Braunschweig to here I really enjoyed that warm welcome on Wednesday 8 pm!

The scene was great. People sitting on the carpet around an unlegged table sharing fine food and entertaining stories in candle light and smooth music. After four days beeing here I really can say - this all day life here. Thanks to all of you!

hitchhikers all along

While Kasper made it to Jerusalem in no more than twelve days of hitchhiking, Kadry (a friend of Marc who is arriving tomorrow but sitting next to Kasper yesterday) hitched from Estonia to Amsterdam in 4 days, with only 5 rides. Around the same night of her arrival, Lena and Kardan were stuck in some random toilet in a German petrol station.

Temptations

Jjust some keywords before taking off to the airport.

digesting uncooked vegan food

A long walk back to the hotel after a graet vegan dinner downtown Boston, in a restaurant where Amylin would love to cook; I am still recovering from all the information that our point in the matrix gave me about the short life "CS 2.0" lived. So much information in such a short time - very rewarding.

I suffer for you all...

Laying on a mat in a Bedouin camp by the red sea, I can't help but be envious of all you in cold, wet climates. It's beautiul, hope everyone is having fun wherever they are [or heading].

Don't ask

Don't ask

Don't ask but this is the view from my current room. Meanwhile I am thinking why we still don't have any vacuum tube transport systems in place, which make you travel across the Atlantic in less than 10-15 minutes on a zero-waste basis. I also received a nice answer from above. I just missed all pins seven times on a row while bowling. One colleague simply said: face it robin, "you are just not born for this". Right on.

Kasper on the road

Ha, also Kasper managed to get in a truck with a driver that has internet on-board. He e-mailed us on the road in Bulgaria saying he had a great sleep in Pitesti and that he is now on his way to Istanbul.

coming and going's

On the same day that Amylin arrived safe and sound in Porto and Pascal came over for a visit while on his way from Marrakech to Leeds, Matt went forth and back, and left again to Egypt and Kasper left (again) early morning to Istanbul, while just a day earlier Grace went back to the States, with at the same time Kassia and Sky arriving one day after each other.
