    No, I've never been there. A friend of mine went there several times, on a "road trip" with his friend. (They would never let me join. )

    ... But I've been in Gambia, West-Africa, with my "jazz-class" from Sund Folkehøyskole, 2009-2010. It was an awesome experience. Most "shocking", was hanging out with a "gang of friends" at their house;- the atmosphere, and everything- was exactly like how we used to chill home in north Norway. Listening to Jimi Hendrix on the stereo, and smoking pot . I also had many other, beautiful experiences.

    The worst part, was when I got food poisoning? or something- after drinking home-made palm wine, sharing the bottle with 4-5 strangers at a late night party. I awoke at 2 in the morning, with stomach pains so bad; I barely made it to the bathroom. A classmate found me at 8-9, sitting on the toilet, completely passed out- with my head in the sink. . I recovered, but only after 4 days of feeling really uneasy and tired.

    The rest of the journey, easily made up for that, though.

    Cheap cigarettes, 3 packs for a dollar. "Super Kings Presidente" or something. Very strong, with an...eh... suburban flavour of burning garbage! .

    "Look, look, come here, everybody! -shouted a young, native man. Our entire class came to look. It was a bright green snake, up in a tree. All of a sudden, the snake was on the ground, and "running" fast, between everybodys feet. "EVERYONE RUN AWAY NOW!!" another man screamed. It was a green mamba. (and 4 hours to the nearest hospital/antidote) :o

    I also visited Turkey, and the Dominican Republic, both times with my mother and family, as a child.

    ...well, now I need to get my arse out of my chair soon. Four days to Christmas eve, (in Norway, we celebrate on the 24th),
    -and I got loads of stuff that I need to do. Can't even remember half of it!

        Thanks... Christmas was exceptionally great, I got to meet both my uncles, and drink myself to sleep . I got a pair of wool... "giant socks" for my feet, , a CD from my uncle (where we play a song together, )... early morning the 31th we had a minor accident at my house. Which left me distressed, and in a worred(bad mood for the rest of the time, even till today.

        I don't want to write about it online.

        But it's no biggie. Tomorrow is the first "real day" of 2021- I'm gonna start my resolutions;

        I've been concerned about alcohol withdrawal, but I'm certain it's 99% in my head. If I just get rid of all these empty cans, and stop thinking about it-
        I think I'll thrive being sober .

        Got alot of spare time, to do important things, like meditation, playing guitar, studying. Getting rid of the daily drinking habit (and other bad habits) will be good, when things settles in.

        I'm going to make 25 litres of wine, though... raisin/apricot/lemon wine . And homemade wine is all I'm gonna drink. \m/.

        ...also, I'm hoping to get a decent "deal" on a payment plan for all my debt. On the 15th I have a "big meeting" with all the associates regarding my welfare and illness- and I'll ask them to help me, the best we can. I want a lawyer. But... "don't worry, be happy" . Gonna sit down and fiddle with my new OD pedal .

          A lot of the alcohol stuff is in your head but that doesn't mean that it doesn't affect you physically and even worse down the road. You'll get to a point where your mind is creating psychosomatic illness and this will affect your health.


          I'll still get back to you on the other stuff just give me a day or a few.. I'm very busy this week.

              Yeah man, it's something I have to really think about and think about how I felt from both sides.
