    for you beer lovers....and i know there are many on here...

    the city of Bruges has now almost completed a underground beer pipeline 3km long that will deliver beer to pubs and into your homes...in the future...right now it goes from the brewery to the factory....

    Nothing to be bitter about, it's a good idea.

    How long until some of the 'new' Belgians dig a hole, break the pipe and fill their 50-litre plastic drums with it and start flogging it to tourists??:D

    I have seen beer pipelines in two places, one in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and one here in Bangkok, TH.

    In both cases the breweries would supply beer to sales booths, small restaurants etc around the brewery, numbers being in the hundreds for sure. The patrons would pay by the meter. However, in both cases they stopped after too much beer "disappeared" or "evaporated"..... wonder where it all went :rolleyes:

    This is the brewery which had the pipeline back in 2001-2003 when i visited Abidjan on a regular basis to do some service jobs in the factory opposite the brewery which itself was producing and supplying the cans/ends to the brewery.

    Tried to use Google Maps to get a better picture but it is all cleaned up today. No more stalls and restaurants outside.

    Nearly got shot on my last visit and never returned :eek:

    LMAO goatwack :yahoo: :yahoo:

    Seriously though, it was quite scary as some drugged kids soldiers with Kalashnikovs stopped the car I was in and demanded some cash. Showed me the full magazine before loading the gun and pointing it at me. After handing over some 50EUR worth of WA Francs they let us go.

    Funnily, when i arrived my driver told me his story how he was shot just 4 months earlier. The bullet entered just left of his nose and exited behind his right ear. He survived only because they flew him to Paris for surgery. But he was like: "nothing to worry now Harry, I'll drive you safely from the hotel to the factory and back....that won't happen to me twice". :eek: ... Oh, all fine and dandy then :rolleyes:

    The country was in a civil war at that time and i was among only 25 passengers on a 747 going into Abidjan (never felt better treated on a flight). The return flight was packed with evacuated wives and kids and to make it into an ordeal, we had to take off before 6pm and since CDG won't let you land before 5am, we had to make a stop in Lome, Togo for 4 hours before continuing to Paris. Imagine some 250 children cramped on a 747, was some experience i tell you :D :D

    Bloody hell Harry, that's quite some event. Can't say I've ever been in such a precarious life or death situation, wouldn't know where to begin with that. You seem very well travelled and have seen many sights I'm sure. Just glad you came throught that ordeal and are here with us :thumbsup:

    Oh, i can tell you a few more stories from visits to Niger, Nigeria, South-Africa, Senegal, Myanmar/Burma, Russia, Georgia etc. But then i was never really scared to go anywhere i was asked to go, I was just happy to travel the world and i got paid for it as well. :D

    Cans are produced in virtually every country on this planet and there are some really nice places like Seychelles, Fiji Islands, Mauritius etc. but then also some really rough ones. I traveled to some 150+ countries so far but very, very rarely had to fear for my life.

    I went to Abidjan because none of the other engineers wanted to go and the first few visits were quite OK although you could feel and see the tension building up in the country. Massive demonstrations in the streets, some 150-200,000 people at times, street fights and the likes. I was mostly staying at the Ibis Hotel close to the factory and that was on one of the main roads into Abidjan. At all times i had my essentials in a backpack to move quickly if needed.

    On the last visit though i had to stay far away from the factory at the Intercontinental Hotel as that was the only one the Blue Helmets were guarding. Seeing the sand bags and machine guns in front of the hotel got me thinking that it has become really serious which then indeed turned out to be.

    Thought about that a few times as i have notes/pictures from all my travels but never started it :oops:

    Traveling the world was just not possible for me as i was born in Transylvania, Romania in a very small village and never thought i'd see anything else than my country. Only after being allowed to emigrate to Germany in 1984 it all became a possibility. 1997 i started then the job in the UK which involved a lot of traveling, usually 10 months/year.

    That is also one reason why my employer could send me anywhere, i never said "no", no matter which country it was or if it was deemed "unsafe" or "dangerous". I was on a "discovery" tour all that time :)

    Maybe one day when i retire I'll start writing :)

    It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
