My trip in England ended with a stay over in London. I posted a request on FB and Mieke offered an air mattress. Mieke and her husband Lex already living in Notting Hill for a long time. We cycled around a lot like real Dutchies and I even joined her yoga class. Mieke teaches meditation and breathing exercises. She is gonna start with a project to help victims of the Grenfell tower. Remember the flat fire last year? The fire started in a Hotpoint fridge freezer, but police said it was not started deliberately.
More than 200 firefighters and 40 fire engines were involved in battling the blaze. “Extensive investigations” have led them to conclude 350 people should have been in the tower block on the night of the blaze. Check out the vlog about Mieke and her experience with the Grenfell tower here. Find out more info about Mieke her lessons.
For my last night I stayed over at Vicky his student room. His story about home: “Home to me will always be Pakistan. I worked my but off to get a sponsorship for my study in London. But I was having a hard time coming here and got even into a spiritual crisis. In Pakistan people are much more closer to each other. The people here are so stressed out.” I think he is right…
The next few weeks I’m working in the Netherlands and preparing my trip to Australia en New Zealand. Do you know any locals in one of these countries? Please contact me. Thanks!
