Stop the Search and Rescue missions! I’m still alive and breathing. Currently writing this in a hotel in Omaha.
Last time I posted, I was still in Valentine (Nebraska). After that I drove eastwards through the beautiful country (reminds me a little of the French countryside though) and ended up in Sioux City. Here I stayed just for the night, nothing special to report. The only thing mentionable is that I tried something new, strawberry lemonade. And loved it! In the hotel I also viewed a movie, Knocked Up – funny movie.
Sunday I continued my travel eastwards and in the evening I ended up in Marshalltown. And that was the night I met Emma for real.
Yes yes, that was our first real meeting on American soil. And it was lovely. We went to see a movie, Mr Woodcocks. The movie really sucked, but it gave us something to joke about afterwards. Then some diner and we ended up in Wal-mart (huge supermarket – ideal place for a first date).
OMG, they have almost everything in super sized packages! Like a Super Jumbo Extra Large M&M’s bag, which held about 3-4 times the content of our biggest M&M’s bags.
After Wal-mart it was time to say goodbye already…
The next day we briefly touched base during lunch and after work Emma showed me around – her town, her neighborhood and her house. During the evening we bought some subs, ate them in the park – after driving around and getting lost in the teeny tiny town – and we watched Donnie Darko at her place.
Yesterday I spend some time with her during lunch and then drove off to Omaha. I hope I can meet her very soon – she’s amazing!
Today I’m gonna visit the Omaha Zoo (one of the biggest in USA) and will try to upload a bunch of pictures by the end of today. The last pictures I showed were the pictures from Seattle, before I got my car. So got almost 1,5 week of pictures to show you all!
So maybe some pictures later today, but first to the dierentuin.
EN? Hebben ze daar ook apies?

Will post about it in a bit, but yes… I’ve seen monkeys. And other animals.

Did you check out their fences? No Bokita accidents in the States? 😉 Good to hear that the very first real life meeting went well! Wouldn’t it be more easy to upload ur pictures at her place? (assuming she has really fast high speed powered ferrari internet)

Damn. It is Bokito.

Although, it was a girl monkey. Maybe it IS Bokita.

Thank you for the insight about Bokito, Paul. At last I feel like I understand your culture now.
