Day 12 – August 28th: Charlottesville, VA – Lexington, VA – 96km

Despite my natural aversion against Fast-Food and mass-consumption there is an interesting, schizophrenic thing happening as the journey wears on. I tell myself the Fast- Foods are non negotiable, where else can you cool down, eat, charge your appliances, do your laundry and get the internet for 1$70? Public Libraries come more and more into contention as the journey goes on, but I can’t eat in them, hardly wash myself in their restrooms. But beyond that, somehow I come to look forward to the big cup of iced Subway Tea. And the same goes for the Walmarts, Walgreens and co. An eyesore they are, contemptible, but after a whole day of fuck-all small-town desert, I can’t help but feel the relief. Because if you want to eat halfway decent food (organic and such) and not Gas-Station Char-coaled beef…

The whole paradox of our times…

What I learnt from it all: I shouldn’t let myself get consumed by guilt…
