Possibly the best café in Europe,

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

for travelers of a bohemian disposition, is here. I know you may be expecting larger or more dramatic travel notes, but I decided that either I dumped my diary here more or less whole, or I did nothing much. So, nothing much it was.

But this has books, wonderful coffee, wifi, and wit. It might be in San Francisco, except that it is not self-conscious in the way it would be there. I suppose you don’t have to worry about the competition so much here.

Still not here

But there are photos here

I haven’t forgotten this place, but my internet connecitons are just too intermittent on this journey for me to try to blog. Still, this morning, I have been away from home for three weeks. In three weeks’ time I will be back. I have so far reached Gällivare, and will shortly set off for the most northerly co-op shop in Sweden (It occurs to me that Tromsö is probably even further north, otherwise I would have written “in the world”).

There are getting on for 30,000 words of notes from the journey so far. I thnk this might be a worthwhile book, if I can mae the next three weeks as productive.

In the meantime, if anyone wants to contact me, the best way is to ring +46-709-84-89-70
