Before I went to Argentina, I was on a 2 week long vacation in the States. I wanted to visit some old friends and use my leisure time to relax a little…
I will publish a post about this vacation soon. Please do stay patient for a little longer

In the middle of the Rocky Mountains in a hotel in Teton National Park and we got a free internet connection – sometimes, the U.S. is simply great! Thanks to that we managed to send a live signal to the family back home and I was able to upload some pictures of our road trip. It’s just day 3 and 4 from when we started last Sunday (05/20) but better then nothing, I think The pictures show Crazy Horse Monument, a Mammoth dig site in Hot Springs (Custer National Park) and continue with Devil’s Tower, Big Horn National Forrest and the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY. To have a look at them simply open the May menu on the right side (if not open already) and select the proper link.
We’re continuing our tour now south to Salt Lake City and the Grand Canyon Area…

I didn’t even realize that today was the 1st of April when I was reading my mails this morning. One of them with the title “Guess what?” and a 3 MB attachment was suspicious, but from a good friend from AIESEC, that I got to know on WSC over New Year’s.
The attachment was a music file with the title Silvio from Bob Dylan. I could hardly believe that such a relative famous artist has a song with my name as title! However, I listened to it and it felt real – although it was the first of April.
However, grasping the lyrics wasn’t that easy. I may be may English knowledge or the fact that folk songs are generally hard to understand or simply just mean nothing. I was at least able to find the lyrics online:
Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is coming on fast
Ain’t complaining ’bout what I got
Seen better times, but who has not?
Silver and gold
Won’t buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know
Honest as the next jade rolling that stone
When I come knocking don’t throw me no bone
I’m an old boll weevil looking for a home
If you don’t like it you can leave me alone
I can snap my fingers and require the rain
From a clear blue sky and turn it off again
I can stroke your body and relieve your pain
And charm the whistle off an evening train
I give what I got until I got no more
I take what I get until I even the score
You know I love you and furthermore
When it’s time to go you got an open door
I can tell you fancy, I can tell you plain
You give something up for everything you gain
Since every pleasure’s got an edge of pain
Pay for your ticket and don’t complain
One of these days and it won’t be long
Going down in the valley and sing my song
I will sing it loud and sing it strong
Let the echo decide if I was right or wrong
Although I don’t like folk in general, I’ll like this one, because the singer is rendering homage to Silvio, who knows a lot about life – just like me.
