Last Rites

Good lord it's strange to be home. It's going to take me a while to get used to it - just the different keyboard is enough to put me off.


So, the last few days in Mexico. Well, I broke the habit of the rest of my trip and got mugged on my last night abroad. I was walking back from the lucha arena when a kid about 15 or 16 ran past my left shoulder pointed a cap gun at me and pulled the trigger. If this was supposed to shock me it didn-t really work, as I just looked at the fella with a bemused half grin when he said "give me your money". No, I replied and went to walk off quickly when his hitherto unseen accomplice grabbed me from behind. I tried to break free and run off but was tripped and knocked to the ground where the pair proceeded to administer a swift kicking to me. Keeping me down with their feet they grabbed my wallet from my pocket, gave me a few more kicks for good measure and ran off. Gits. Due to the money exchange place having given me my cash in unwieldy $500 denominations last time I'd got some changed I had a fair old amount of mazumah on me when I got jacked, meaning I lost around £30-£35. Which was a pain in the arse. But to be honest I wasn't badly hurt, and like a moron (or so I'd thought) I'd forgotten to bring my camera with me when I went out that night, so it really wasn't too bad. And as I said to the woman who ran my hotel, these things could happen any where. What can you do?



The journey back was going fine until we were about to take off from Mexico City. Yup, things went wrong that quickly. Just as everyone had boarded, the heavens opened and a great big storm kicked off. Marvellous. We were stranded on the runway for 45 minutes before we finally took off. That would have been fine, of course, except that this flight wasn't going straight to London. It was going to Frankfurt, from where I was getting a connecting flight to Heathrow. By the time I arrived in Germany I had a twenty minute dash across the vast space of Frankfurt airport, arriving at my flight just minutes before it left. What didn't make it from one flight to the other was my luggage. When I arrived at Heathrow I had to then wait for a further couple of hours until my bag turned up on a later plane. Still, again, no harm done.


Anyway, I'm back now, so all I've got to do is unpack and sort out all my stuff, and dust off my room. Now, to go back to my life...

Dear fellow blogger,

I perused your post with much interest, while looking for info about electronic arts. Unfortunately your post was not the exact kind of info on electronic arts that I had in mind. But I thought I should drop a note to thank you for the great job that you are doing. You might wonder what all these links are that I am typing in to my comment; well the link leads to a company's website that allows you to buy and sell almost anything like things related to electronic arts on interest free credit, and you may pay back whenever you like for your things related to electronic arts. You can get up to 100,000,000.00 CBD of credit line just for signing up as your initial credit line, and as you earn credit at the same time you increase your line of credit too by twice as much as what you earned. Here again one last time is the link: electronic arts.

Cheers and happy trading.
