i talked to an italian dude - named Gio - (giovanni)

we were talking about gay life in canada -
and the netherlands - and also about the general
cultural similiarities-

gay marriage and full rights was one topic

and then also the drugs legalization
and the sex trade stuff
we talked about how much of that 'sensational stuff'

is mostly for tourists -
cause it's there/ available for us here
and there - and just normal

he said in short -

he said 'it's like when something is hidden or
forbidden - then people want it -

once you can have it - the mystery rubs off -
and people see it as mundane - and perhaps
just not interesting -

aka 'there are more important things to think about - and much more interesting '


anyway - just a view -
