Apparently the sound was really bad last night, what a shame. It’s a shame because if it was good, you could have heard me getting my first hitch. Obviously I didn’t know if this would work – wandering around a petrol station asking for lifts, mic-ed up to a space in Berlin, a third party in on the hitch. This is live – will anyone trust me?
They did. Three sweet young people, about 40 mins after I stopped talking directly to the art space in Berlin, said ‘jump in!’. Luckily I had five minutes to chat to them in the car before we drove off. This was long enough to tell them why I was hitching to Lyon, and they were charmed. I then turned the phone (relaying the audio to the art space in Berlin) off, and explained what was going on. I then turned the phone back on for the people in Berlin to hear us driving out of the petrol station. Good start.
And the mobile internet stick is working!
