    i'm leaving for a two month european excursion in ten days. the problem is, i only have enough money to stay for about a month. the girls that i'm going with have enough flow to stay for two months, so that's what we've decided to do. do any of you have any tips for staying homeless throughout europe. i've done it in chicago for a month, so i'm not a first time bum, but i was just curious to see if anyone knew of any places that are really easy/safe to sleep on the street, in parks, etc., and where i should avoid completely. any info would be awesome. peace.

    go back through your post and replace "europe" with "north america" every time you see it, then think about the kind of advice you could give somone from europe asking you that. I'm sure folks can help you out, but theres a lotta fucking countries in europe....you haven't even nailed it down to what PARTS of europe you'll be in.

    yeah ese, that makes sense to just think about it as the states...i didn't even think of it that way.

    and the reason that i used europe so loosely is because we really are traveling pretty much the entire continent...england, ireland, france, germany, italy, spain, switzerland, austria, hungary, benelux, portugal, greece, etc.

    and to everyone that had smart-ass remarks, i'm not asking "how to survive on the streets," i'm not that fucking naive, all i was asking is if anybody knew of any place that is not to be fucked with. anyplace that someone who had never been to europe wouldn't exactly want to stumble into...image some german kid trying to kick it homeless in chicago having never been there before and stumbling upon cabrini green...kid would get killed in a fucking second, that's the kinda shit i was asking.

    I had a lot of success in San Francisco at hanging around tourist areas and giving "The REAL San Francisco" tour guides. One of the bummers about having a "vacation" in some cool place like London or Paris is that you're an outsider and don't know about any of the really cool shit. Once you've taken a tour bus tour and hit all the tourist-trap bullshit sites, you're stumped. You can waste a lot of valuable time wandering around aimlessly.
    So. You go to the trouble of getting the straight skinny on good restaurants, clubs, night life places, cabarets, out-of-the-way tourist sites that aren't all crowded, secluded beaches, etc., etc., and hire yourself out as a tour guide that speaks English.
    I was giving these two young, pretty, hip girls from Germany a tour once in S.F. and we ran into two friends of mine at The Chart House Restaurant, who were high as a kite on LSD. It turned out to be one of the weirdest and kinkiest days of my life. German girls are extremely wierd. And wicked. They later went to Guatemala, in the middle of the Guatemala civil war. By bus. They were really a crazy pair. And they paid me in traveler's checks in Deutchmarks! It was a hassle at my bank.

    Actually, I'm writing a screenplay. Gonna make a movie. Anybody out there know any really good books about shooting videotape? I am thinking about taking the Public Access channel's course on video--it's free, and they are very thorough, or so I've been told, but I have no interest in actually getting on TV. My interest is in independent film making these days, and by gum, I'ma gonna do it.
