Yes, I'm back, believe it or not... and I'm delighted! I had
never had an international camping experience, and I simply loved it!
It was not a very long trip, but yet was lots of fun.
"The Black Eagle" asked me long ago the name of the camp, but I
didn't knew it back then. I do now, so for everyone not to make any
mistakes, I went to Bundeslager '93, in Friedeburg, Germany. It is
the national "pathfinder" event, and they do it every three years.
As an international guest, it was just fine, except for the
languaje problem. German boys don't like to speak english, and most
of the international guest spoke english... and no other languaje
(well, besides their own, of course). We came to discover that,
besides they are (using a mexican expression) so "dry" in their way
of expressing themselves, they sort of "forget" that there are people
arround who don't undersant ANYTHING that they're saying. This was
specially notorious at the Ranger/Rover Center, where the program was
much more loose, and full with both phisical and intelectual
So, just for not taking any more of your precious time, I can
talk about anything you want to know about the camp (but please
remember that, of course, I'm no expert). Read you arround!
