I told you I would never be completely silent...

So I'm not!

I DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE TONIGHT!I want to stay right here, in Ayacucho, and I don't want to go to Cusco (though that is supposed to be beautiful too)
We´ve had such an amazing time here, from Monday til today, with the guys from Mama Alice, a foundation for streetchildren.
They are all so sweet, and leaving today, saying goodbye to them, was really aweful!
I met such a cute guy, his name is Handerson and he´s completely sweet :)
The others are so nice, and now we´ll probably never see them again!
Ew, we all cried so much.
There are no words to explain how it feels to be here, and there´s no time either, so I guess that will have to wait till next time.

With love (from a far and beautiful Peru)

So, I guess this will be the last you'll hear from me...

... At least for a week or three!
Or course, I never will be completely silent, and there are ways to connect to people from across the ocean, so if you think: 'Oh god, I'm going to miss Kirsten,' don't worry!
We will write weblogs over there, and you can follow our expedition here.
It's in Dutch, I'm afraid, but we'll post pictures, too.

And oh, I'm getting more nervous every single minute, and the thought of hiding under my bed keeps going through my mind.
But I won't. I started this, I was the one who wanted to go, and now I'm going to finish it!
I'm not so keen on cowards, and right now, I'm being a BIG one. But I guess it's normal to be nervous and a bit afraid...
And it's only three weeks (yeah right, only...), 21 days. That sounds better.
And then I'll be back with a suitcase filled with experiences, things to tell and lots of souvenirs and gifts!

Always be who you are, no matter where you go. (which in my case means: be a little nervous, be a little shy, be very careful, be clumsy, be a little stubborn and love shopping, no matter where you are)

So... I hope I'll see you all back when I've returned and got my feet back on the ground over here again!
I'll let you know about it.

With love,

The last days of disco...


Another story of mine today, since I'll leave for three weeks Friday and I won't be able to write (much) then.
The nerves are starting to kick in, and I've found myself wondering why exactly I wanted to go away for three weeks. But then I remember all the great things we are going to do or see, and how much fun we all have, and then it's like: This can't be real, me having this opportunity.
And I'm sure it's going to be great!

I took the picture above a while ago, I went to the movies with Anna, and after that, we wanted to use the bathroom, but we had already left the cinemabuilding, so we walked into a mall. We couldn't use the bathroom there, either, but I saw all these cute Discoballs hanging at Expo and took a photo of them.
Sweet, aren't they?

I love disco, but not so much the going out-thing, but just making my own disco. I organise my own disco with Tjorven sometimes, and that's great. We dress up in funny clothes, take a hairbrush (instead of a microphone), turn on the old CD's from our parents and sing along very loudly. Last time we danced at Tjorven's room, and then you get pictures like the one beneath.
I know, we must be absolutely crazy.

And this picture show my little sister Jytte (4th from left), with her friends last weekend. They performed on Rockstar 4 a Day, a talentshow for kids who want to dress up and sing or dance like their idol.
As you can see, they performed Pokerface from Lady Gaga, and I must say, they did very well! I'm proud of them!
And I love their sunglasses, I want them, too! ;D

But I'm going to watch the soccer game again, see you later!

With love,

The fascination of
a boy and girl in love,
for a second I can see her.
In the mirror ball,
the human animal,
the creature that I fear.

Don't call it a comeback
look what I invented here
I thought it was easy
They came it took it away from us
The last days of Disco...

Here comes the sun!


Oh, we beat them Brazilians!
And oh, we beat them Argentinian!
Oh yay!

Haha, I'm sorry, I just had to do that.
But I'm happy, you know! Nadja called me yesterday, if I had someone to watch the soccergame Netherlands-Brazil with. I didn't, so she asked if I wanted to watch it with her, Sammy and Daphne. I did, and then they asked if they could come over to my place to swim.
So they came over, and we had so much fun while relaxing in the pool and talking about everything and everyone.
And we actually forgot about time, so we missed the first ten minutes of the game, but we watched the rest of it. It was so good they won!
And today, it got even better, because Germany won from Argentinia!
(I don't like the Argentinian, especially Maradona is a creep)
I really hope that there won't be a Netherlands-Germany final, because I wouldn't know who to support.

And oh, I heard a nice one this week...
Did you know I am in love with Paul?
Neither did I, but according to some guys from school, I am maddening in love with him.
Pretty good for them to know what I'm feeling, I don't even know it myself.
My feelings are driving me crazy again. I just don't know what exacly I am feeling for who.
It could be friendship, it could be 'Oh, he's cute!' or it could be even more, but I'm just in a tornado of feelings and I can assure you, there's nothing better to keep you up at night, thinking, wishing, dreaming, hoping...
And a friend of mine wants to connect me to her brother.
No way, that is not going to happen. If there's one thing I'm pretty sure about, is that I'm not getting involved into a relationship with her brother. Oh no.

Well, at least, this feelings are inspiring me...
And I think I might find out what these feelings mean and what I should do with it, but for now, it might be better that I don't.
We'll see what happen ;-)

With love,
