All looks very friendly and relaxed, Louis.
Louis: Relaxing before the rush in the kitchen subdues to allow them a chance at preparing dinner stuff.
This is great - seems like a "sneak peek"!
Louis: The kitchen of this backpackers doesn't allow too many people at a time. These lot (and I ) were waiting for a turn to go and prepare something.
They certainly were having a great time Louis!
Louis: A good way to while away time, I agree, Richard.

Did you join in, Louis?
Louis: No, most of the times I leave the young ones to do their think, Lisl.

The start of a strip poker game
Louis: Oh, no - then I missed something, Chris.
I love the camaraderie, Louis, especially amongst the youngsters. smile
Louis: I enjoyed observing youngsters and what they do in these backpackers hostels. In many ways, they are just like us, when we were the age. I now believe that when someone look at "the youth of today" they actually forget they were young as well.

Where are the beers?
Louis: A valid question, but they didn't share the answer (or insight thereto) with me. Maybe they hid it, when they saw me coming smile
There is no money on the table.
Louis: That would be the end of good humour, Bill.
I found some very social and some very quiet. Had such different experiences in each one.
Louis: We had two social ones and one quiet. Your comment is a good summary of our trip review, Mary.
If you get a good crowd I guess it can be a great way of passing an evening and hearing each others stories.
Louis: I have seen a lot of mingling happening over games, Brian.

It is always nice to meet up with other people, no matter what age.
The stories they already can tell.
A great picture.
Louis: That is ever so true. Two young men I met, have already done two thirds of a cross-Israel hike from south to north. I loved to get them talking.

Thank you Astrid.
They seem to get along very well Louis... i'm sure that you had a great adventure with them....petersmile
Louis: Being with and among young people on an adventure was quite an experience. I found that if you remain interested in things around you, including them, they soon accept you. I made a point of getting to now their names and what they are doing (e.g. what studies a student will be busy with). Told them, who I am, one or two sentences of conversation and leave them at it. Not too long and they will share with you in some way.
I hope they are not playing for money Louis.
Louis: No, they are not, Ayush.
