12 lost days and a funny farm.

A session at Interesting North

Saturday 13th November, 2010

3:00pm to 3:20pm (GMT)

In the spring of 2006, Marcus Brown left his apartment in Munich, turned left, only to wake up 12 days later in a tent. The tent was on a camping site next to Lake Ammer just south of Munich. This surprised Marcus a little as he didn’t know how it had got there, nor where he had been for the twelve days previous.

Marcus will be talking about these missing twelve days (which he has been able to piece together now) and his subsequent, self enforced stay at a hospital and the amazing group of people he met there. He will be talking about the smell of socks, card playing Turkish men, and playing pool with against a man who suffered from panic attacks. More than anything, however, he will be talking about what it was like to realize that he wasn’t mad and being loved.
