To conclude the past 2 months: summertime in Gothenburg with gigs, running and the good life. Then one month in Morocco: firts up the gnawa festival in Essauira. Then a bit of Marrakech, trekking in the Atlas mountains up on jebel Toubqal (via Imlil) -North Africas highest peak on around 4200m. Gnawa rituals in Marrakech (Tamesloht) and Salé/Rabat. Familylife and too much food! Then back in Sweden: Finally started climbing after my 5 month break! But easy does it for now... Went to the Outdoor tradeshow in Friedrikschafen, hung out and did a gig for Peak Performance with LaFouche feat. Timmy O'Neill. Back in Gothenburg, drove directly from the airport to another gig... Did a stunt job for a swedish movie than will run on the next Gothenburg Film Festival and SVT. Then LaFouche came over and we did a little shoot for Petzl. Philippe Ribiere arrived in his van and we have been out doing the best of the crisp july weather.
Now I'm heading of to France in a few hours for the TAB festival in l'Argentierre de la Bessé for gigs and climbing, then EASY climbing in Ceuse! Now, where's that BIG bag for both climbinggear and instruments..?
