behaving as if i were joined to alex @ th hip. where do i begin?
finally hiked/ walkd into pfarrkirchen today- a roundabout way by
breitenbach & furcht (?) that made it about 15 or so kilometers- maybe
so just about ten miles...it's alex's turn to be under th weather- just
th weather clears & he gets ready to go back to hamburg w/ his new
girlfriend vanessa, who came down for a visit last thursday. we'll board
inter-city together tomorrow, i change trains for weimar @ fulda...
maybe i shd do something like a chronology...
so i took th train from amsterdam to munich on tuesday. met christopher,
alex's hometown bud & th ultimate party machine, running on coffee, beer,
cigarettes & a new infatuation every other day. in
th week & a half since i met him, i've only seen him eat once: last
when we got some pizzas to go from 'il cavallino', a kitschy-elegant
trattoria that seems to be th only restaurant among
th downtown pfarrkirchen strip of pastry shop-cafes...
i'd had half a bottle of macon for w/ a late lunch salad & cheese plate
th amsterdam train, & a tomato soup & some tortellini w/ th same canned
tomato soup for a sauce late in th evening, close to arriving in munich.
anyway, i caught th christopher bug- had a big hefe-weizen & a shot of
tequila @ a student-run bar known as 'manhattan', on top of th tallest
in th student residence compound, & got kind of chilld on th windy
looking over th town talking to amy from detroit...it was nearly four in
morning by th time we arranged our sleeping places & i woke up on eclipse
wednesday, august 11, w/ a bad sore throat...nursed it w/ an
breakfast of weisswurst, pretzel & sweet mustard, then alternatively
'oohhh'd' & 'awwww'd' along w/ th gathered crowd as clouds played w/ th
visibility of th event as totality approached...
