I arrived in Columbus at 7am after a 14 hour journey. I was staying with my friend Kasper who I went to school with In Germany and i hadn't seen him in 10 years. It was good to see him again and see how he had changed over the years. That night i met his flatmate and friends and we went out to a bar where a lot of college people went. The next day there was an American college football game and Kasper had a ticket but he wasn't feeling too well so he gave me his ticket and red football jersey. I went with his friends and it was one of the coolest things I've seen. The entire stadium was filled with red shirts and there was a great atmosphere. The teams mascott was walking around and the friends I was with knew the guy in the suit and yelled out to him and he climbed into the stands and everyone yelled "he's foreign!!" while pointing at me so I got my picture with him (see facebook profile photo). It was very funny talking to American college students and most were very interested in new Zealand. I spoke to one of Kaspers friends Emily for about an hour and she asked me all kinds of questions like whether we have pizza, all sorts of American shows, cars, electricity, facebook, etc. It was very funny seeing what they thought about new Zealand. After a great time with Kasper and his friends it was time for me to move on to new York.

must be nice to meet up with Casper again after so many years. Did you get a chance to meet his parents?

Hi Tim,

wat een geweldige avonturen en zoveel leuke guys en vooral girls :), die je ontmoet. En ik maar denken dat je een wereldreis maakt om je te oriënteren op een mogelijke werkplek (grapje). Heb je met Kasper nog de herinnering opgehaald over die crazy autorit (formule 1 was er niks bij) met jullie buurman (Ralf) op Dom Rep naar het vliegveld. Gelukkig heeft Kasper het vliegtuig nog wel gehaald. Ben benieuwd wat je van NY vindt. Veel plezier! Pauline.

Je moeder is weer in het land en we gaan samen Amsterdam onveilig maken en lekker SJOPPEN, en natuurlijk over jou kletsen.We komen elkaar vast wel tegen op skype deze week. Zo te horen gaat het allemaal goed met je. Geniet ervan en pas goed op jezelf ( moest ik van oma zeggen) GROETJES EN EEN DIKKE ZOEN VAN ONS ALLEMAAL. Ps de pepernoten zijn alweer in het land zet je schoen maar op, wie weet ..........

Hi Tim,

Klopt het dat je na Ohio niets meer hebt geschreven? Af en toe kijk ik om te lezen en te genieten van jouw avonturen, maar helaas, pindakaas, niets nieuws meer. Bevalt het zo goed in Zuid-Amerika, dat je geen tijd hebt om reisverslagen te schrijven?
En ik vind het juist hartstikke goed van je dat je zo veel sociale contacten legt!! Gewoon lekker mee doorgaan.
Hoop gauw weer een gezellig verhaal van jouw hand te lezen.
Big big hug,
