Late one night or very early one morning we set out to achieve this task at the crazy world of a British festival. I mean we thought 'who would be more up for swapping and exchanging a range of items than people who decide not to wash, shit on days worth of other people's shit, stand in the rain dancing and singing and definitely do not drink or take drugs?!' Oh but how wrong we could be, this task is a lot harder than you think, especially when you are met with dubious people that think you are a Kyle McDonald wannabe (the guy that managed to exchange a red paperclip for a house 14 swaps later!) but then it could have been the wine that made us do some possible bad moves even though it also made us excellent talkers and traders!
So our adventure began on the walk back to our comfy, cosy tent that we called home...
Along the way we met some interesting people and had some interesting conversations...I just wish I could remember them more to provide better evidence!
All in all people didnt seem to have too many interesting things on them that they wanted to trade, but I think in festival terms having people give away plastic cups on which they have a deposit, beer, a gas canister and very valuable toilet roll I think we did reasonably well! Alas... No house at the end.
