Friday afternoon a Bus to London leaves Berlin ZOB at 19:00. The drivers have buttoned shirts and ties, which matches the ‘Business Class’ writing on the side. There is few people in, guess it will pick up most passengers on the route, in Hannover, Brussles or Lille, before it will arrive in London tomorrow at 12:30. You can fly to London from Berlin cheaply several times a day, so bus is not really an option. I did fly a few weeks ago, when we had a workshop in Brighton. We even discussed a possible #brexit, all british people I did talk to wanted to remain, some passionately engaged. In retrospection, they were worried, while I myself could not imagine it happen. This morning I read the result and it still is hard to believe and to understand, what it will mean now. What alarms me is, that it very strongly seems, that brexit-leaders do not have any idea either, but only big-mouthed slogans. I am very glad to have seen another England lately – people that connect just like everywhere in Europe, that are dedicated to understanding and humanity. So there is hope, even though aggressive populists seem to be everywhere too …
Sonntag nachmittags hocke ich auf dem Mäuerchen zur Böschung an der ‘Westkante’ des Zentralen Omnibus Bahnhofes.
Sonntag Abend. Am Fuß der Böschung zum Parkplatz an der Soorstrasse ist eine kleine Mauer zum drauf Sitzen.
Am Bushof stauen sich Leute eine Weile an, bevor sie busweise nach Sophia, Stettin, Rothenburg,_, abfließen.
