I fear this correspondence will reach you too late. I oriented myself with the Mountain Xpress’ Bele Chere map and traveled East (sic) in hopes of finding falafel and friends; I found myself a bit lost. So I traveled South (sic), according to the [same] map, and that is where I am now, desperately seeking help.
I can only tell that where I am is a dismal, desolate and dark place.
Please send water, food, insulin and a Bele Chere 2010 t-shirt — I fear my window of opportunity for purchasing one may have passed as epileptic seizures are setting in quite frequently now.
Looking forward to next year's festival.
