LINK OF THE DAY : 20 Minutes of Darkness.
The weight of this sad time we must obey;
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
The oldest hath borne most: we that are young
Shall never see so much, nor live so long.
It takes 20 minutes to do, and it's black as night. Yes I'm talking about the Chunnel (Channel-Tunnel). Not much to see when you're going through it. Kind of cool to think that just 10 years ago... travelling by train between Europe and England was impossible... now you can, very cool. The train is bloody fast too. Goes about 200 km/h. Dang fast.
So now I'm in Brussels, Belgium. Kind of scuzzy, but charming at the same time. Seems to have a cool nightlife from what I saw... checked out the pubs and the sites for about an hour and a bit tonight. Going to check out more before I leave tomorrow. It's very old and I'd like to stay longer... but at least I can say I've been here now.
Tomorrow off to Berlin. Should be fun. I'm really interested in WW2 stuff... but the Germans are not too keen to talk about it, it seems. Can't really blame them though. Admittedly the Nazis were horrible and evil. But they united Germany and accomplished incredible feats for a nation of their size. It's kind of not fair that there are no memorials to the German war dead in Germany. They weren't all Nazis. Most were just brave young men who wanted what was best for their country... most didn't know they were acting in the name of evil. History is written by the winners though, and that's just the way it is.
This is not pro Nazi or anything just to let you know... just expressing my thoughts on the matter. Germans seem pretty tight lipped on the subject... I'll have to explore it further.
So for now I will go chill and then sleep. My legs kill, I've been walking so much and so often... feels like my shins are about to split in half.
Let the good times roll.
