Day 1, Monday 13 April 1998, Helmbrechts to Schwarzenbach Saale - Started out on foot from Helmbrechts at 10:30 a.m. Arrived in Schwarzenbach Saale at 7:00 p.m. Near Seulbitz, earlier in the day I was threatened, then chased by an angry young farmer who wanted to know what I was photographing. It was when he sent his small children back into the house, screaming at me all the while, that I became truly frightened and began to run. I could see the car up ahead of a small hill. When I looked back over my shoulder I saw that he too was running. I made it to the car ahead of him. Then, finally he turned back toward his farm.
