GIRO 03 – July 2010

One man, one car, four countries, four thousand kilometers. This was his last tour.

Western alps – France – 11 July 2010
You won’t believe it, but in 2010 also, I was doing the slave for a living. The job was taking my soul away each year it passed. But for some reason I continued to work there. Maybe it was lazyness. Or maybe it was that I was used to that kind of violence. They teach us to obey and shut up when we are kids, and we continue to do that when we grow up. Anyway, for someone raped like me, the job wasn’t that bad. I worked on a computer all day. And I was lucky, very lucky. I had priviledges no-one could dream of. I could leave the job for 4 weeks each year and do whatever I wanted. But I couldn’t take these 4 weeks all at the same time. No no no, that was too much, even for a priviledged slave like me. My owner unchained me for 2 weeks in summer, and 2 weeks in winter. But this year I did a great job as a slave, so my owner gave me 3 weeks for my summer vacations. Wow! I could plan a longer trip this time. Three weeks were enough to let me go beyond the alps this time. And so I did. I tried to escape as fast and as far as possible from my problems, but they haunted me even there.
