Post project test #2: arm wrestling

20 aug

Prior to the project, I wanted to test my muscle strength. So I searched for a strong-looking guy in the streets and asked him whether he wanted to arm wrestle with me. His name was Ruben. This is what happened:   During the 100 days, I did do some work-out, but not as much as […]

Marianne came by, yesterday evening, to talk about the project. Lately, we’ve been on the phone with each other almost every day, so the last few days were a break in my pattern as well.

#2 in the carnival of offal eating: kidneys

First time running barefoot in Amsterdam

18 jun

I had to start with only a couple of minutes, but it was already so much fun! Now I understand how some people are overdoing it: it’s addictive. p.s. Should have shot the video differently but I was focused on CHASING that rabbit!
