Sweden


video

(walking through Stockholm)

The Black Knight could not enter the race in Ladispoli on february 21st for a strong cold but he was not upset because he kindly sent Sir Giorgio to conquer the rebel city for his glory (Black Knight's glory of course). No problem, however a black scary armour was there to defend the black kingdom. Indeed the Black Knight was ready for a good performance but the night before the event he had pain everywhere and a sore throat. By tomorrow the training will begin again. Never mind.

In the meantime the glorious Warrior had to go to Stockholm to attend the ESPO Sustainable Development Committee meeting http://www.espo.be/ so he had the chance to visit the city. Snow everywhere (see the picture) with a -16° C. as a welcome to the Black Knight. From the sun of Italy to the ice of Sweden. However it was a wonderful experience.

  1. Last Sunday I well defended the Balck Knight flag.
    I hope you'll have time for running there in Sweden ... on the street covered with snow. So the Black Knight will increase his strenght. :)

  6. Wow, that is a LOT of snow!! I like that crunching sound with every step. Sort of sounds like stepping on corn flakes.

    And never fun to miss a race but sometimes the best thing to do when you're sick is not race. Hope you're feeling better!!

  17. I am glad you are conquering the Nordic lands. In the new lands, although the arrogant barbarian crowd was driven away a year ago, they have distilled their strength on the fringes by waging a campaign of just say no and they have created a new mercenary force called the Tea Partiers who harass everyone with mindless imprecations. The old guard causes much trouble because they obstruct wherever the forces of change go, even though the old order left behind a ruined worldwide landscape. But the new commander has forced through a new order and although parliamentarian tricks that no one understands still stand in the way of the new order being implemented, it is about to come to fruitition and the new lands are about to join the 20th century. Then the new general will work on the new lands coming into the 21st century. I will report as progress occurs.
