    Hey it was great meeting you all! And special thanks to Erde and Ulf for picking me up on the side of the highway while I just happened to be walking by. I went to Brussels to check on extending my 3-month tourist visa, then I was hoping to rejoin you guys later, but I was unable to extend the visa. Something amazing did happen, though, I found a charity that is buying me a plane ticket home. So I won’t become an illegal alien and be banned from the EU 🙂

    I wrote a blog about staying at the camp: http://pursuingnothing.com/2012/06/26/hambach-forest/

    OK, keep up the good work. You are all amazing people!
