Still Alive

Well, it was my Birthday yesterday and one of the few that coincided with the Sunday of Fathers day (when I was born) Cheers Dad!

I managed to go and see Bonobo in Warsaw on Friday night which was a treat, one of my all time favourites and not what I expected for a mainly electronic band.

Other than that, a pretty non eventful Birthday for a 28 year old codger!

Back to Krakow in a couple of weeks…. finally!!!!!

Tramp on TV

Well, as promised – me on the telebox. Unfortunately they cut most of our little chat out of the final production.

When I recall that Bryan’s idea of approaching this woman was as a potential “partner” I watch this video and accept that I am probably, no, certainly the worlds worst wingman. In fairness, things quickly changed when she started asking for money to “save the dogs” she had offensively white teeth and sure as hell didn’t seem like she was interested in this “charity” business.

As there is no translation, it goes a little bit like this, she writes on a sign she needs money for new summer shoes in Latvian, she hassles us (tourists) for money to save the dogs, we are totally sceptical and a tiny bit obnoxious and she comes clean admitting shes trying to scam us, there is a camera over there and we win.YAY. I’m sure it says I am a Brazilian  will have to get it translated.

SKIP to 21 minutes.

Riga Writeup

Well, I am certainly glad I chose to stop by this city, I already fell in love with it. I don’t think it will be the last time I visit this place, everything I love about Eastern Europe is right here.

Just a few thoughts, this country only has a couple of million people. It’s quite a crazy thought! Seems to be a good mixture of Russians and Latvians here with the Russian women fairly noticeable about town, its like the idea of a sexy western woman gone horribly wrong but I guess it works for them!

I hung out with my host who is friendly enough but when his friend joined us he was a bit concerned about his English, well being in Latvia, what job do you think this girl had? I don’t know if you are familiar with those online video casinos with the women welcoming guests to the virtual game in a rather fetching outfit and dealing cards or spinning roulette tables” but if you are, you will know that 90% of the time they feature an Eastern European! Well now I have met one in real life, I am very happy to cross it off my list.

Onions – Not quite figured this one out yet but the country seems divided on this one. About half the population HATES onions, not managed to trace the origin of this one yet.

Birch tree Juice – Think council pop only filtered through a tree. Actually this home made drink is probably the freshest tasting water I have had in my life and a tiny bit sweet. Apparently good for hangovers. Tap a birch tree, collect the juice.  Job done.

Big lumps of ice floating down the river and you have everything you could possibly need from a city. Sold!

Think I will get myself back to Poland as my wonderful toe op is coming back to haunt  me.
