Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
what is difficult to hide is that there is a bunch of fairies around here. Fairies of humour, abyssal economics knowledge, equations, cooking, train blogging and last but not least, reporting in high risk exposed areas like the streets of Toulouse... Which category do you belong to Alex ? Tough if you were allowed only one choice :)

And as you could see in the Toulouse diaries, I wasn't exactly enthusiastic about showing my face. All people saw were my left thumb, my trekking shoes, (one of) my military pants, and my bicycle. I had a picture of my feet with tongs, with part of my legs and some pair of shorts showing, taken during the last demonstration (because some girls were pasting a poster right beneath me when I had gone back to last week's perching spot, so I thought I'd take a picture of them pasting it) ... but I chose not to publish it, thinking "then everyone will know what my feet/legs look like and what colour my usual tongs are". So I am a bit on the over-cautious side, but not as cautious as DoDo I guess.

exposing the colour of your tongs is not such a big deal. It is not like half of France had seen you naked...:-)

I don't think I'm ready yet to expose my toes and my ankles to half of France.

Well, maybe it's the other way around. I don't think France is ready yet. I mean we're talking about fabulous ankles here.

I'm sure there is a way round your dilemma.
Anyway, are you planning to wear boots on May, the 20th ?

Well as afew pointed out here, I'll be recognizable as soon as I walk through the door (since I won't be wearing boots, nor a bhurka).

I am more concerned that people know what I think down deep inside than what I look like. That is superficial, and does not last long. And I won't help it anyway no matter how much plastic surgery I do. :)

Well there are possibly a thousand people I'd love to get in touch with again, and who could, who knows, be reading stuff I write here and recognize me ... and that would be great! But there also are a handful people I do not want to recognize me. Nothing to do with the mafia or fleeing anything, just people I don't want back in my life. So I don't mind the world knowing what I think inside, or how I got drunk one night, but I don't want them to say "hey are you the Alex from this place?". Damn I've said too much, this blog will self-destruct in 5 minutes.
