“Travels to a Different Time” : 4July1975: Umea, Sweden: Germans Getting Piggish

Woke up freezing cold and with great bravery uncovered myself and quickly dressed. The Germans were up and stuffing themselves with breakfast and never even offered me some. I had no food. Come on guys have a heart as I got you in free to a couple of discos and beer to boot. Fortunately a gas station we stopped at was selling some milk so I had a litre for breakfast. I am drinking 3 litres of milk a day as it is so cheap as compared to other beverages. We stopped for lunch but again they stuffed their yappers not offering me a bite. God bless em. We ended up in Umea and thank goodness for a marketplace. I was ravenous. Made it to youth hostel in Umea and played some Frisbee with some Danes and a Swede.
