Thanks for popping in.
Sorry I’m a bit late tonight.
It’s been a long old day at the Frankfurt Messe.
Messe = Trade Fair.
Mind you, there is a serious Frankfurt mess around the train station.
Blimey, do they need to sort that out!
I thought the open air urinals took the biscuit,
but when you get feral packs of young men running wild,
scoring drug deals in public and then scattering like cockroaches when you switch the light on,
you really don’t want to be out there.
In fact, all I want to do is get back to the leafy lanes of East Sussex.
I know we have exactly the same in our cities; I’m not delusional.
You must know by now that I wasn’t born yesterday!
Seeing it all and smelling it all
just flags up the desperate situation in our urban communities.
Makes our little Clarity bubble of art and all things lovely
I suppose on the other hand, it makes me very grateful that I CAN escape back to lovely.
So what happened today?
Well, I gave a presentation on blogging,
waved my arms around a bit when the German words wouldn’t come out...
Showed off our stencils,
and of course our stamps,
got very very Groovi...
and gave a big shout out for Hochanda.
Did the audience enjoy it?
No idea, but they were maybe too scared to complain!!
was mighty relieved when Kathrin let me off the hook too!
Also shook hands on some very good business deals today.
If they all come to fruition we’ll be laughing.
Time for bed now.
Travelling back tomorrow.
Although the expo here is massive, and you could get lost in the rabbit’s warren that is the Messezentrum,
enough is enough.
love and hugs,
