Saturday February 15 th 2015 carnaval-Sunday, Lalobbe, 24 km

The same story again: the weather, the road, possible encounters, arrival. I’m here in my room to arrange and plan from here to over there. Tuesday a delegation of our illustrious sports club wants to come and join me for 3 days. Only two women have dared to come along. Others do not know what they’re missing. But yeah, it is already difficult to find a place for me, you can imagine how hard it will be with a horse, a dog and a sports club (this is no order of importance). So I’m working like hell to find something. And during the weekend the ladies of my office will come. I must try to fit them all in my trip agenda. And question remains where to leave that horse. And if I don’t find anything? Then it does not work!
Anyway, there wego again: great weather, lots of deer and hares, I didn’t speak with anyone, no bars, quiet country roads and now I am in a very remote place, similar to my house in Cottessen, in a cozy old house. Horse Leon in the pasture with good grass, tied to a tree, Tosca sheltered under a canopy, at the timber and in a few moments I may join the lady of the house at the table. In addition, there are only cats here. She has a full bush of still black hair, while she already is over 50. How it is possible! Her hobby is singing. Sometimes groups of singers / choirs stay at her lodge and sing here together. I thought it better not to ask her to sing a song for me.
I’ m not very enthusiastic about the next two days of walking, because they are very long and uphill, downhill. Home is carnaval. There is no carnival here. A silent place.
In about two weeks I’ll be home on vacation. But people should also think at the Charitee, charity, for which I walk, viz. Mama Alice operates in Peru through our Dutch, Noorbeek Frederique Kallen, who with her organization, makes efforts to offer street children a better future. One of these days I’ll cross a country-frontier again. If everyone agrees to donate to Mama Alice one eurocent for every km. that I walked in France, then at least I do not walk for the buck his horns and for the dog’s tail. On the opening page of my website is indicated how to donate.
A Dieu. Next time more…
