My last day in Portugal, where I have been to the ECOSY
summer camp, was indeed very nice. I hang out in Lisbon with some Irish comrades and to the very end the solidarity of our movement was evident as four persons crammed into a hotel room to save some money. Today Tuesday I was bound to fly Lisbon-Madrid-Stockholm with Iberia
but after a terrible day that made flying with SAS look like heaven I missed my flight from Madrid to Stockholm. So here I am, sitting in a tragic hotel next to the aiport in Madrid, feeling however quite ok after eating a huge buffet of all kinds of food for free, and then finding out that Liverpool FC
won tonight's game in the CL. But when I was standing in lines, getting more and more delayed, the only thing I could think about was our ECOSY utopia of a European federation that could buy an airline like Iberia and then shutting it down on behalf of stressed social democrat who only wanted to get home to Stockholm and then go to the SSU-congress
in Linkoping... But now things have calmed down, and the purpose of a more integrated Europe is not to shut down airlines, that was just me being very upset. Promise. However, my blogging from the congress is delayed, but hopefully I will be in Linkoping tomorrow afternoon. If my flight home is on time, that is...
