Some updates..

Posted by walterheck

Hello all,

As I don’t really have anything happening right now that is worth a story, it’ll be just another bullet point list of what’s been happening in my life.

– I have been working really hard lately. Unfortunately, I have had my share of work-related problems the past few weeks. No Internet for almost a week, Vista crashing for no reason, the program that I am working on giving me a lot of crap, the challenges of a 5 hour time difference. These have been the problems that have been keeping me busy. I have been at my friend Felipe’s place for almost a week because of the Internet problems and have worked through weekends to make up for the lost time of vista breaking down.

– My relationship with Raquel ended as quickly as it started. I broke up with her after some pretty nasty events. It’s sad, but I feel there is nothing that can be done about this anymore.

– The time difference between here and the Netherlands is now 5 hours. This brings some new challenges as I try to start work at 8:00 dutch time, which is now 3:00 Brazilian time. I hardly ever make that.

– My balloons package has entered Brazil, but it hasn’t arrived yet. I am anxiously waiting for it :). Also, a package sent to me for my birthday by my good friend Eef from Holland, has not yet arrived. It has been underway for over a month now.

– The organisation for the national couchsurfing meeting we are creating is going smoothly. We have bi-weekly meetings and things are coming along just fine. We already have over 100 people signed up for the meeting. It’s gonna be great!

– Next week I’ll be doing another competition trekking episode, this time near Ouro Preto. This one is going to be in the dark! As if that doesn’t present a nice challenge by itself, the terrain in that area is very steep, so it will be tough on me. Nevertheless I don’t think this is your average everyday experience, so I am gonna try my best to keep up :)

That’s all I can think of for now :)

  1. He Heck,

    Rottig, zoveel pech. Maar ook weer wat zaken die wel relaxed zijn. Zoet en zuur, geeft toch een beetje afwisseling in het leven.

  2. Kerel, hang in there. Life on the other side of the ocean is just as stormy and unpredictable.

    Binnenkort maar weer eens Skypen, kunnen we wat ‘mooie verhalen’ uitwisselen!

    Take care!

    Hopelijk heb je niet al te veel vertrouwen in de Brazilië uitgave The Lonely Planet. Of een van de andere LP’s over Zuid Amerika…
