Last week I took an excursion to a national park in Germany along with Steve. We decided to escape the very flat Netherlands and get closer to mountain areas which we are both more familiar with. One thing I didn't expect was that it was freaking cold out there and I didn't have enough gears to protect me from bone-chilly coldness. Other than that, everything was perfect: fine weather, decent affordable foods, gorgeous scenery, and we saved 40 Euros by taking sloooooow train back to Amsterdam.

Couple weeks ago i met Anna from a swing dance floor. The lovely australian girl told me that she's going to lead 350 people to dance Charleston in the mesuenplein on 24 OCT. I was planning for being part of the 350, alas, it seems like I might be travelling in Germany at that time.
www.350.org provides me more information of what I can do if I end up in cities outside Amsterdam. I see a global wave of self-organization for the concern of climate change. Many years ago Petra Kelly referred to Joanna Macy and said that the primary goal of Green politics is an inner revolution, it is "the greening of the self." Yet in our current 2009, the revolution is no more inner and self. Part of the reason is because of the Internet, and the other part reflects a sad fact that climate change is no more consciousness but already a crisis now.
How can the Internet help turn information into actions? That's sth I am attempting to know and do more.
