Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

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.
