Block: Tales from the road (part 15)

Published Friday 14 July, 2017DAY 48So, only a four hour drive from Deventer to Wolfsburg. We are now in a plush hotel in the modern city. Tomorrow is a day off. I have meetings at 12 and 2 and then I unloads the van at 11pm. No wonder German productivity is higher than the UK! But, Im still smiling because Nina ishere. Plush hotel, massive bed and a bottle of bubbly.

DAY 50When you get back to your hotel at 1AM, having just unloaded the van and trailer, when your girlfriend is waiting in your bed, when youre starting work at 9AM, it is too late to write a blog. Peace. Wolfsburg: where Volkswagen meets circus meets Pink Floyd.

DAY 52Where do I start? I am still overwhelmed by Car City. Is this our future? It's a five star experience. The lawns are beautifully manicured. There is no litter. For Bianco I always wanted to offer a five star service. How I failed, in my leather kilt, in our scruffy tent with our disrespectful attitude. We did two great shows today. Danny was back. The audiences where smaller than were used to, but very appreciative. We are one of the street circus shows here. Another is Vincent of Compagnie Mauvais Coton. His act is brilliant, so funny, poetic and graceful. But mainly funny. Genial. Only 6 more shows and our tour is over. What amazing times weve had! Block in AutostadtFive star stewarding.
