TURN THE PAGE (11.04.08)

It has been been exciting... And boring. Very normal, very unexpected. Superficial but deep. It has been human, very silent. Too intimate. Not close enough. The smell of cigarettes while getting up sometimes at 3 a.m. The beers for getting asleep, sometimes at 6 p.m. French fries, meat. Beers again. The motor still running in my head. Asphalt. The intermittence of the white lines: Hypnotic. Different countries, different people... different languages. Same places. Same faces. 
It has been so boring. I'll do it again: as soon as I can!!! :)

And now let's turn the page. And prepare for Israel!


  1. Great song "Turn The Page", I only know it done by metallica... whos song is it originally?

  2. Bob Seger

    On a long and lonesome highway east of omaha
    You can listen to the engines moaning out as one note song
    You think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before

    But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
    When youre riding sixteen hours and theres nothing much to do
    And you dont feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through

    Here I am - on the road again
    There I am - up on the stage
    Here I go - playing star again
    There I go - turn the page

    So you walk into this restaurant strung out from the road
    And you feel the eyes upon you, as youre shaking off the cold


  3. Ciao Reto:)

    Quando si potrà sentire dal vero il racconto di questo viaggio.

  4. Inizio maggio al murrayfield pub di chiasso?
    Già qui in appartamento tra Aglaia e il nostro mitico nuovo coinquilino (maestro di batteria!) intrattengo one-man-shows tra il comico e il tragico sulle mie esperienze on-the-road ;) ma ho la gola secca e le mie storielle vanno "arrosées" con qualche pinta...
    Più che altro mi interesserebbe sapere cosa racconti tu : sbarcare a berlino? idea?
