Maybe it's useful to link to the original post and mention what this is about in the article.
Now the article says to come to the right location, but doesn't say what the right location is.

My passport has expired, not a good excuse, but it is the truth! I even have spare cash at the moment. Will be placing an order for a megaflashSD/SCC in the next couple of weeks.

I hope to make it over to this event from London, although i'm not 100% sure I can, due to lack of money. I hope to combine it with a fact finding trip to Germany. I've been seriously affected by the housing crisis in Britain. I decided to leave before the EU Referendum, but the result made me even more determined to leave. If I'm there I'll be speaking Dutch and German, but trying to avoid speaking English. Sad

I updated the website a bit with some driving directions for those who cannot use Google Maps... but it's only for the last details. Quoting:

Quote:

If you're by coming car, and you're getting close to the right area in Nijmegen, follow the signs with "Zwembad Dukenburg" and/or "Winkelcentrum Meijhorst". Once you see "Winkelcentrum Meijhorst", take the left parking lot and you'll see Wijkcentrum Dukenburg at the end.

Obviously, this should read "If you're coming by car,..." Do I get a prize? BTW, can anyone rell me anything that's illegal in the Netherlands or Nijmegen which I might not know about?

Oops, sorry for that typo.

E.g. drugs are illegal. Just use common sense Smile

Most people think that drugs are legal in the Netherlands. Actually, they're illegal, but tolerated so long as people only take them in certain places or at home. There are lots of things like that. Years ago, I went to a club in London where there was a sign saying people weren't allowed to dance on Sundays due to enforcement of a law dated about 1760. I think people are supposed to keep quiet at home on Sundays in Germany, otherwise the Police will visit them. It's also a big crime to have a barbecue on a balcony in Germany if it takes place more than a few times per year. I also heard that people who witness a fight in France are legally required to try and break it up, otherwise they could be arrested. I think someone might ask me to do something illegal for them while I'm walking along the street, or hanging around before or after the meeting. I can't afford to book a room to stay overnight, unless someone tells me about a very, very cheap room or hostel.

It seems that I now will be coming to this event after all. I hope nothing happens to prevent me getting there. I'd like to go to the restaurant afterwards, so I hope it's not already full up. As for what people could do on the stage, here's an idea from me. You know I'm a musician. I also sing. I've made an album of my music, some of which I originally composed on my original Yamaha CX5M. I have got two versions of this album, one version without vocals, which I can use as backing music so I can sing live. Is it OK for me to sing on stage at this event? I know I should send you an email about this, but I'm very tired now, so I'll send you the emails about this and the restaurant list later on after a good night's sleep! Smile

Hi CX5Mer. There are a lot of things illegal in NL. Mostly the same as in the UK. If you're coming by car, be sure not to use your phone when driving. It can cost you a lot of money. (By the way, you probably need full attention driving on the 'wrong' side of the road in NL.) And, especially in Nijmegen, don't go faster than the speed limit, even though you feel like driving ridicilously slow. There are cameras everywhere.
