But before all this started, I devoted one Saturday afternoon to an event called Free Hugs. Free Hugs consist of one or more crazy people that walk the streets with a transparent and hug people going by. Just for fun. It was all started by one guy from Australia and one music video. Nowadays, you can see huggers in many big cities throughout the world.
So one an half a week ago, I wrote on Couchsurfing forum, so that people can join me and set off for the chilly streets of Hamburg. I wrote it too late, so I was alone, but I have to say it was an awful load of fun. I spent there one and half and hour and it that time, I got around 20 hugs, one group hug from a group of Spanish tourists and I made cca 100 people smile after they saw my sign (before that, it only happened when I asked a question during a lecture at the university). I even got a free beer from some guys, that were advertising there. Not a bad score for an hour and a half, huh?

So I wish you a very nice commercial-pre-christmas period :)
