New friend and a wine

Eleven o’clock yesterday. A smiling German jumps out between a tree and the river Main and say “hi Bjorn!”… First time Iv heard my own name in twenty days…

His name is Michael Freund, and it was true… He was a new friend (hello, my German is getting there, I know “freund” means friend… ) – so he wanted a interview and a photo. Some one down the river had told… And yes that’s what this is about, let the world or at least Europe, or a bit of the river know about The Shirt, the symbol, and the Red Cross campaign for missing children… So I told about The Shirt, world cup in South Africa, Blatter, Platini, Messi, and all the 700 others signed shirts. I told about the power of football uniting. I told about missing children and the project. And I told him that Ill stand somewhere on the Black Sea in 90 days.

I also left a challenge. There is most English shirts on The Shirt today. Norwegians nr two, Spain nr three.. So where are the German fans. Where is their Kaizer, der new Bomber …

send them… Donate. Please.

And my new friend, mr Freund, he gave me a bottle of the nicest German wine.

So, Ill donate that to the best friend of my project… From my Nokia. Im @heidenstrom on Twitter and @Rhine @Main or @Donau 😉
