Rachel Blake started a blog which she titled "My European Trip - Rachel Blake", which was used as a cover to make her appear to be a college-aged student on a trip through Europe. However, the true agenda for her trip was to travel in search of the Hanso Foundation.
Her findings about the Hanso Foundation were posted on a separate blog, which was accessed through her blog by typing "evident agenda" into the Extra Info bar on the right hand side.
The blog was used as a cover for Rachel, but the site was also used for additional purposes. Such as the hiding of glyphs which attributed to various clips from the Sri Lanka Video which could be accessed through HansoExposed.com. On Wednesday, July 26, 2006, the glyph XIGZ2Y10S2 was posted as an entry on the blog, E2LL1Z5E was found by clicking on Sri Lanka on the right, and PGVPE4EC was hidden in the source code disguised as 14 separate images.
Rachel contemplates taking a trip to Florence to check out the Palazzo Medici, or maybe Portofino or Lerici. She also mentions that she may go on a charter tour boat to check out the coastline from the sea.
Rachel took the Eurail through the French countryside from the Italian Riviera, at night, which prevented her from enjoying the sights. Rachel lined up several tourist attractions to visit including the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Centre Pompidou, the Seine, the Bastille, the Champs Elysee, and the Arc de Triomphe.
On Thursday, September 14, 2006, Malick left Rachel a coded message which tranlated into:
R -- I respect your caution. Suppose it's warranted, after all you've come through. I can't remember it exactly, but I think when we were in the stairwell in Paris, you muted the mic as I said "Because he wanted me to help you, and I can't question a man who would launch the Mental Health Appeal... to save a loved one." Say what you will about him now, his heart was once in the right place.
