Sluiskil will always remain a mystery to me.
I was informed through the "German connection" that the Sluiskil cokes factory was about to be destroyed, soon, very soon ... I should go as soon as possible, but only on sundays to avoid unpleasant encounters with security.
Freezing fog, visibility less than 100 meters ... I had some trouble finding the place, but when I did I could hardly believe it was abandoned : lights were on inside the offices, the fence was closed but in good condition, I heard the sound of machines ... maybe my information wasn't that reliable after all ... what to do ?
If I could only see 100 meters, so could security : they could surprise me anytime, but I could stay unnoticed too ... temptation - fear - risc calculation - decision :)
