Back in paris

my last week in nyc went too fast i spent most of my time doing activism, taking pix of activists for the 9/11 truth.Check out their website, there's a bunch of great info & interesting points. They have so much going on, it's great! If any of you happen to be in nyc any sunday night, they have a movie going on (starting at 6.30 at st mark's church). i would also suggest that you check out google videos: search for those 2 movies - loose changes 2 - 9/11 mysteries. The second is the best.
Anyway, being away from nyc feels empty! Great people & there are many i can' t wait to meet again.
slawek took me to baltimore since manu never returned any of my calls or emails. We spent the night at joice's place. slawek found her on couch surfing. She was cool, i slept pretty well, but have been very stressed the day before & the day of my departure. The trip was pretty short (6 hours) i almost did not see the time going. The only bad stuff was this little boy who cryed almost all the time. Since i came back, i've been having many odd/ bad dreams. When i think about something, i'm still in ny, thinking like a new yorker...
This morning i woke up at 3. i could not sleep anymore. i then thought about calling the apple center to ask about my memory's change... the announcement i got: "we are open from monday 'til friday, from 9 am to 5 pm"... holy shit! Far from ny where it it open 24/7! The only good thing was to go swimming. That's actually the first thing i did when back in my appartment, back at 2pm, in the water at 2.30! This morning i went to the one by the eiffel tower. One of the guys taking the clothes recognized me, he likes me because of my tats & was telling his collegue about it. Hmm... anyway! It's so weird to be here. i've been trying to catch up with a lot, i should have taken some rest though letting a couple of days going... i might wait until next week to do whatever i have to.
The guy i was supposed to host yesterday & tonight did not call... the girl i'm hosting tonight didn't call either... hmmm... people are weird!
Oh, i finished downloading the pix of my trip, so check out my album one last time... Just a little bit of all that i took, but a good selection i guess... Maybe i should try to be a tourist in paris?
On sunday, the antispeciesist collective is leafleting for the vegetarian day.

take care you all,

Good morning!

Let's see... more than 10 days since i last wrote... i'm back in ny & i did not get back to paris on the 20th as planned... i'll be here in the us until october the 3rd.
i got to st louis where eric was waiting for me at the airport. This is such a warm feeling having someone, a familiar face to expect where you get out of the plane.
Since he is back to school, we could not spend all the time together, but we've had a lot of fun
We went to a party on the night i arrived & played this game called "the village", i really enjoyed it once i got the rules They play it every week, & it's a lot of fun. The next night, we went to that coop house where there was a vegan meal, followed by the showing of some movies about activism. Some really interesting such as how to voice your claims. i loved it! There are so many struggles down this earth & so many people... i'll get back to that later when telling you about ny.
Anyway, i also took so many pix! There are beautiful old building, & i got the chance to get in an area where there is this old building falling apart (a fabric). It was a great experience. A bit scary though... especially since night was falling, so i could not stay as long as i would have otherwise. Anyway, great images came out of it.
i wish i had figured out then that i'd stay here longer, so i could have stayed in st louis a few more days... next time
Ok, ny... let's see... after hours in the plane, wrong time, late planes, etc... i made it to the airport where slawek was waiting for me - again, wonderful feeling
His place has been a bit busy with couch surfers, but it is fun to meet all those people Last friday we had a party... about 12 people. Pretty cool & great people. All the food was vegan - a lot fruitarian. It ended around... hmm, i actually don't even remember what time i went to bed lol!!
Before that, there was this protest against bush -he was giving a talk- i joined the march & took so many pix of american activists. A funny thing happened. This guy talked to me, asking me if i was not in tompkins park in july (remember the punk concert?) Well he was there & had noticed me. We talked a bit then listened to the speakers. eventually after the gathering we talked some more. He told me about a meeting about the 9/11. It is the group in charge of denouncing the big lies surrounding this event. That was so familiar... i mean the meeting & making decisions... very similar to the FRAP organizations (for those familiar with it )
Tonite they show a movie called "ground for truth".
On thrusday i went to see danny nova performing. We met last week. i met him the saturday before & ended up in nj where he has a house by a lake. He is an amazing singer & his performence was wonderful, except for the last song where he used one type of strip girl. What a pity because the song is actually my favourite & it made it look not as good because of that girl
You can have a look at his website & listen to some of his songs here.
What else... let me think... i guess i forgot half of what i did - once again - but here are the basic
oH, concerning my email with the argument i had with this dude in sb; i got some people feed back on that, it seems i did not express myself correctly: i absolutely did not mean people killed during the ww2 were guilty, that it was their fault & that german soldiers were sweet little guys who were not wrong: DEFENITELY NOT!
i was just talking about choices all around that & where this can lead you or not.

have a great day/night!
