Returned from a weeks touring in Belgium on the weekend. Had a a very busy but great time there playing six shows and also singing at a lecture by a guy called Willy who climbed Everest in 2003. My good friend Diethard looked after me and we had some great nights. I think my favourite show was at the Café DeFagot in Ingelmunster. I thought the crowd were going to pick me up and carry me on their shoulders at one point! There were local elections there on the weekend and I must try to find out the results as there was great concern about the rise of fascism there especially in Antwerp. I met nothing but kindness there and of course great choclate.
