38. The 8th of November : Hitch-hiking from Zagreb to Rijeka.

Hrvoje brought me to a pay toll where i hitch-hiked with Raul, the truck driver. Very nice guy with whom we shared some stories and one coffee in a gas station. Raul left me 15 km before Rijeka near a pay toll where i hitch-hiked with two artists who invited me to a poetry-litetature evening in Rijeka on a boat. Poets recitated their artworks. Poets from Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Irak, and others countries. I was the french guest and sang Hey Jude from the Beatles and Les copains d’abord (friends before all in english, or something like that) from Brassens in front of 60-70 people in this Boat called Marina RI 28. I was hosted by my friend Ivan there for two nights.
