May 17 2009

Decided to shave my half-assed beard. I can never get that meaty beard growth, you know. I’ve stayed back in Grobbendonk, and have decided to rest and catch up on some reading. I’m in the middle of a book called “Shantaram”. Good stuff.

Walked into the bathroom and bumped into the same elderly gentleman from yesterday. His name is Jermaen, a retired radar technician. Before his radar stint, he flew for the Belgian Air Force, and was briefly stationed in El Paso, Texas. I mentioned that the ad agency I worked for have their main office there.

We shave at our respective sinks like men. He is a man of few words, but he has a lot to say about my blistered feet, emphasizing the need to take care of them. I wholeheartedly agreed with him.

The last three days have been really rainy here in this part of Belgium, but today the sun decides to come out in the evening. I hope it stays that way until tomorrow.
