yesterday (saturday) i went to the anti-racism / anti-wilders demonstration at the dam. with ak and djox.
first thing i noticed was the crowd was pitifully small compared to the antiwar demo i'd attended in feb 2003. then there were tens of thousands, and we couldn't all have inhaled at the same time without squashing each other. this demo was attended by 1300 people, sez the news. a lot of politicians deliberately stayed away, because they thought it was wrong to attend a protest mainly targeting one man. and the bitter weather didn't help much.
i ended up walking/standing around town for four hours before coming home and going shopping with jk and then helping prepare dinner. my feet and back were hurting by evening. a bunch of people came over for dinner at jk. at one point dvr looked out the window and it was snowing outside, like real snow, with snowflakes and everything.
today is easter sunday. olia is flying in from milan.
