WHO AM I?

I started together, Ilse and me. When we arrived in Nepal she went back to the Netherlands while I stayed. I have nothing to do there anymore. Europe is fucked.

I left the Netherlands because I do not see any future in the EU or with our own so called democracy. De banks committed the biggest robbery ever and are being protected by the governments. Nothing changed but my company went bankrupt. Did the banks or the government compensate me for the banking crisis or the open borders with cheap labour? No. Our regulator, the Dutch Central Bank didn’t see 9 crises coming, ING, RABOBANK, ABN-AMRO BANK, LIBOR, EUROBOR. Anyone get fired? No. Any politician lost his job? Nope. Anyone stood up and raised his voice against this injustice? Nope. No, I am not going back…

We left for Rome, Athens, Cairo to fly to India and Sri Lanka to end up in Nepal. We had a hell of a time. We were in the Vatican, the Acropolis, the Pyramids, Trichy Temples, Sri Lanka Buddhist Ashram, Boudanath, Namo Buddha and Swayambunath. I went on to see Rishikesh and Manali. What an amazing world!
