Hey Elaine! I planted a bunch of your seeds last wednesday and they are already sprouting and then some. They are all hidden away in the corner behind the computer because i didn't want them stretching towards the windows. This is fun and I love that your seeds are growing here beside me.
Anyone who wants to can still send other seeds for me to plant too :)
Anyways, I realised I forgot to write about something that happened on our way to the Alps two weeks ago. We were taking the speed train to Lyon and then a slower one from there to the mountains. So we get on the train and speed along southwards. It's actually really smooth and comfortable and I hope these kinds of rails/trains spread throughout Europe fast. So much better than flying! I think we were about 45 minutes or something from Lyon when we hear this crunching sound and feel the train running over something on the rails. At the time I just assumed it was some branches because that was what it felt like. But no no no, it was a human body! That crunching sound and the thing we felt being crushed under the train was some guy offing himself. Definately strange to think about... I guess the impact of a very very fast train and a body is kindof powerful in itself too because they said some windows were broken in first class. So yeah the train stopped of course, and we had to wait three hours for someone new to drive the train (they don't let you drive it further after stuff like this. makes sense i guess.). And that was my little story of today.
