I arrived at 7 in the morning and it was COLD! I wondered around like a chicken without a head - trying to find an open cafe, pub or mcdonalds. but didn't manage to find one for 1.5 hours.... brrrr. Ended up in this inet cafe where i'm typing this. Off to find some people to talk to.... but where!... we'll see! :)

2 days later...

well - it turned out i looked on the hospitaly-club site (http://www.hospitalityclub.org - (sign up and try it! :)) to find someone to stay the night. I had already contacted this guy Pable a while back and he had sent me his phone number. He wasn't home, but his flat mate Marie was, she invited me to come over and after walking through the city for a while I got to their place.

Both Marie and Pablo were incredible kind! Marie baked me a cake, she made me food - we drank beer and wine and in the evening Pablo took me out to town to join a free live Jazz concert right next to the "Beurs" in the city center. Don't know how I'd ever have found that otherwise! Around 12 we got back home and I slept there for a few hours, Pablo even got up with me at 4:45 in the morning and walked me all the way to the train station. Thanks ever so mucho Pablo! Big kiss for both of you and Marie :)
