Leaving Hanko

Today we rehearsed Nils Petter into EEE (The End of Everything Ever). He will take over from Kjell in Recklinghausen - which is where we're going next.

At 3pm we had to pack up because I had to go to Helsinki to start my journey back to Germany. I am writing this from the ferry.

All I can see is water and the sunset, which certainly has something.

I'm still trying to decide whether it's calming or slightly scary. I'll be on this boat for 24 hours (but they call it superfast, so I guess it must be quite a fast way to get from Helsinki to Rostock). I'm in the bar and a guy is playing the guitar to a mainly Russian audience. In the other bar a mainly drunk Russian audience has just finished watching the football on a far too small tv screen. Ferries are a bit like a different microcosm. It's very unique and if you've ever been on one, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

Tomorrow night I will arrive in Rostock and drive home to sleep in my own bed. On Monday morning I will get new tires for the car. It deserves them.

hello Elke

beautiful pictures BUT

"very unique"???

one cannot have gradations of uniqueness, one is either unique or one is not...

much love

i see your point. but i'd like to offer a counterpoint: go on that ferry. i promise it's more than average unique.

i think there are gradations to everything.
