Well, today was a quiet day for me here in Berlin. Putting Religion aside, I took the time to reflect on what this holiday represents to me. As a kid this quote was crammed into my memory: "Forgive them for they know not what they do" - what Jesus said while being nailed to the cross. Today I heard this quote again… but this time, it struck me, its very powerful. I feel ignorance is not a reason to excuse others of mistreatment… but in return, I shouldn’t be ignorant and respond in a poor manner. To forgive others andyourself gives you freedom to move forward. Hey, springtime and Easter symbolize a new clean slate - So I am choosing to forgive, let go and move in a direction of pure intent. Amen my brotha!
It seems most people don’t know what "Drifting" is. Many Americans are familiar with this reckless driving from Nick Hogan/ son of 80s wrestler Hulk Hogan. Its really a nice trashy Professional Sport in America. But the Japanese are the ones who made it what it is today. If your interested, the movie PLUSPY is a cult classic from the insane Japanese driver Keiichi Tsuchija. He studied under the master Takahashi, who was the foremost creator of drifting techniques in the 1970s Japan.
Now, in the Middle East, Drifting has evolved past this boring, somewhat safe reckless driving, into absolute insanity called HAGWALAH. They drift regular cars on the open streets, spinning between school buses, trucks and other cars. Fans line the side of the streets to watch or get hit depending on their luck. To make it more fun, you have to bring a couple AK-47s to shoot in the air. Dat iz realz talent yo.
I am curious to know what the Russian version of this is? Any tipps???
