I was expecting to pass through Alicante to London on Thurs 15th, arrived from Joya by bus on the 14th and after a night in a hostel went to the airport to find myself part of the process. There was no accurate news, information or services. Thousands of queueing customers in all states of unpreparedness created a subdued chaos.

On Saturday after failed escape attempts and updated media misinformation I decided to head out to Gothenburg by land, leaving London plans by the wayside. Wednesday was the first available train ticket. Five days in Alicante may have unwittingly shifted my world view and what was to follow in a rail journey via Barcelona, Paris, Brussels, Cologne, Copenhagen to Gothenburg.

Many others were doing the same kind of thing and conversations on culture, environment and human activities connected to mind and destiny were also in the air. It became ‘a series of marvelous events’ with people and a contemporary snapshot of the western axis of Europe. The UK election knocked off course and Brits hopelessly lost outside of their usually safe tourist corridors, a work began at the Joya residency – sleeping and dreaming – has become significant as a result of the serendipity of earth activity.
