I'm now at the juice fasting camp in Crna Bara, a small village in the Hungarian part of Serbia, also called Vojvodina. I came here for the first time in 2009, when Lehel, my former classmate from Uchee Pines (who is a co-founder of this project) invited               Dr. Strachan and a few Uchee Piners to do some health programmes in Hungary and Serbia. Over the past six years, I haven't been able to come back, so I'm glad that it was finally possible. I really like this rural, primitive place. I'm on day five of my juice fast and it's been a good experience - although I still miss eating. Every morning at 7am, we get a special shake for kidney- respectively liver-cleanse. This is followed by kidney/liver tea at 8:30, fruit juice at 9:15, and vegetable juices at 12pm and at 2:30pm. After that, we get some potassium broth at 5pm, and another tea at 6pm. In between, we drink a special powder to cleanse the intestines, which consists of charcoal, clay, psyllium and some other ingredients. The main objective is to cleanse the bowels. We are also supposed to take some capsules with medicinal herbs to get the intestines moving. It's a very effective programme indeed; and it brings back fond memories from our time here back in 2009.

Our German camp meeting was blessed. In fact, there wasn't any major problem and the logistics went smoothly. This year, we only had about 290 attendees (as opposed to 350 last year and 400 in 2013), so this also made it easier for me.

On Wednesday, I'll be headed to Budapest to attend the ASI Europe meetings. After that, I'll be visiting my folks in Germany for one week before I head back to the US around September 10. So my Europe vacation is slowly coming to an end. Nevertheless, I look forward to returning to Uchee Pines!
