Belgium, after Roskilde.
Roskilde was pretty great, I had some noteworthy experiences that deserve a dedicated post. I’m just waiting to lend some photographic material from other people. Watch this space.
Right now I’m just yelloweyeing in Leuven. The heat is a convenient excuse for laziness, and the only concrete thing I’m doing here is looking to the future. Seeing friends, seeing family. The Gentse Feesten, a ten day festival in the city centre of Gent, with a huge attendence and eclectic offerings of techno music, street theatre and general rowdiness. Starts next Saturday, and you have a place to sleep if you are so inclined. Maybe a couple of days of Paris or Amsterdam. La boheme.
And in August, I’m getting lost. Seriously lost. I hope to spend a couple of months East. Balkans, Greece, Turkey. Maybe Caucasus, maybe further East. The only things I know for sure is that I want to learn how to hike in the mountains for several days, and visit a friend in the North if Greece. Apart from that, everything is dedicated to the whim of the moment, with a small eye on my dwindling money. I know when to quit, but I’m not looking that far. I hope this is not a recipe for disaster, but at least the road there will be interesting.
- Typical Dutch expression from the Campine, Belgium. To kill time, do nothing. In my best guess, it comes from the fact that chronic hepatitis patients experience yellowing of the skin and eyes, as well as fatigue and weakness. Thanks H for continually expanding my native language.the Campine, Belgium. To kill time, do nothing.
