August 2, 2009

This was a long Hash. We started in Alvalade and went all the way down to water front, crossing Rua da Samba. The walk took two hours at a relatively fast path.  This was another great hash with a strong participation (I guess there were at least 40 participants).

Pat Condon (Safe Sex)

Hash - Depart Safe SexSafe Sex is leaving us. He is moving next week to Bangkok after several years in Luanda where he lead the Hash as a maestro. This departure calls  for a punishment, as per Hash tradition. Since on top of his it is his birthday, it was decided a cake would be prepared on his head…                                                 – photo Christine “Kenya”

63-1Safe Sex nous quitte. Il part dans une semaine pour Bangkok apres plusieurs annees a Luanda ou il a dirige le Hash de main de maitre. Cela merite une punition dans la tradition du Hash. Comme de plus c’est son anniversaire, il fut decide de preparer une tarte sur sa tete…

Moonlight Hash

May 30, 2009

 The moonlight Hash took place yesterday evening in the Miramar area, on the hills overlooking the city harbor. This was an unclassified event, different to any other one. It was an extensive Hash which started at 7pm and ended up around 11pm. Several stops on the way provided us the opportunity to cool down with a fresh drink.  Did someone not say the Hash was “a drinking club with a running problem”?
