I have been in the Czech Republic now for almost two years. I have seen most, if not all of my friends lose a cell phone, get one stolen, be the victim of alcohol and lose their wallet or just plain not be careful. Not me. I pride myself on knowing where my shit is at all times. I don’t even leave my purse with girlfriends.
Thursday night I let me guard down. My purse was stolen with my camera, phone, KEYS, wallet, credit cards, 800kc, and my dignity. Totally sucks. i was with some friends at Cross Club and … well… I left there with nothing. my friend Kelly felt bad for me and got us a cab back to the Blind Eye so that I could call my friend who had the spare key. Unfortunately said friend was out of town not to return until the following evening. Now, lucky for me I happen to live in the same building as a few people I know. I live upstairs from the bar. That came in handy. The Blind Eye regulars are awesome people. They all came to my rescue. Mike gave me a place to sleep and a Pabst Blue Ribbon sleeping bag to nestle in for the night. Chili gave me 500kc and a big hug. A few other folks bought me shots and asked what they could do. I felt good. I felt like I had a little family here in Prague.
Now? I leave here in 4 days in search of new adventures, new scenery and new tales to tell. Everyone asks me if I’ll be back to Prague. My answer is always the same. I hope so. A lot of it just doesn’t depend on me anymore. I want to come back, but I want to come back for good if I do. So, we’ll see. It saddens me a little to know that it might not happen. But, as is usually the case with me my passion is a little more intense than it should be. I have found something here in Prague that I think is worth fighting for. But in order for me to do that I have to leave. I have to make sure that it is what i really want. Mexico will be my years of figuring it out. Heck, i might not want to leave Mexico!
Anyway…I’ll be in London this time next week. Then California. Then, Hola Mexico!
