it’s been a while since I found the energy to post again. my beloved cat sangeeta (also called sunny) died on december 17th and I had spent the two weeks before that tragic moment at veterinarians. I will miss her forever (I guess only people who also have/had pets can understand these sentences…) – R.I.P. my darling…
telling you about her reminds me now that I wanted to share an experience with you I underwent in morocco on my last surf trip at the end of october this year. it has been during the days of “eid al-adha”, the feast of the sacrifice. reams of sheep had to die these days.
my friend and I had a vegetarian dinner in a little restaurant in taghazout and heard bloodcurdling screams – we saw three sheep, laying on their backs on top of a landrover defender, their feet tied together in pairs. they didn’t stop shrieking. after five minutes the driver jumped again in his car and off they went.
killing and eating animals is one thing, scaring the shit out of helpless beings is a crime in my humble opinion! so my dear friends, think of me and get yourself some nice veggie food on your next surftrip…

this is way too personal now, but I don’t want to agonize over it at the moment. exactly one year ago my grandpa died. I do not consider myself religious but I’m sometimes “talking” to him and asking him why he cannot take better care of me from where he is now.
but I guess he took enough care of me. he left some money for me on this earth and I started thinking about what to do with it. then the idea of my surf trip rose and this must be the path he paved for me.
thank you for making this possible! and I’m looking forward to experiencing what you arranged for me on my adventurous journey from wave to wave…
