A normal blog post...
i hate people taking photos of their food. i really do.
I mean... who the fuck cares what you have in your belly? your mom ? maybe. The real reasons they take those pictures is to remember what they had - i mean.. for fuck's sake if they love food so much.. they should just remember it.. not take a picture - it's got no taste if ya know what i mean. Anyway who would want to remember having this amazing duck when will get back to the usual lunch sandwich? No, really, who would ?
It's all because of those new "mobile phones"... i mean it. Everybody has these new phones that do everything these days. These guys take a photo of every bloody thing. Man i hate people staring into their phones all the time like it's a book or something.
Fuck.. i hate people staring into the books too. But you see... i've got myself a new phone, and it's got books in it too, lots of them and it fucking takes pictures... and boy this duck with slightly caramel pineapple, olives and "herbes", cranberries and potatoes "du village" ... i mean... not to be a phony or anything.. but.. its like i wanted to see how it's like and...
pff.. don't even get me started... i mean... let me start with the beginning...
you see.. here i was in this Bansko/Bulgaria.. for some skiing...
Man i love skiing... i mean.. the classical skiing it's the best. Fuck those board people and the fancy clothes and all... right? At the end of the day a lot of people are just sliding on the slopes.. but the ones you turn your head to... the ones that really ski like a damn alien... those my friend are very few. I'm not one :) but i slide in my way... and always keep getting there. On another note.. some of those boarding girls are really cute to tell you the truth. I know one. So there I was until i had to go. Honestly... i love to go.
So.. i took this old bus that was from a different place and a different time - it was really struggling to fit in Bulgaria.
and got to Sofia - where a cab driver tried to get 5 times the price of the trip from me. Boy.. i let him take me to the airport and you should have seen his face when instead of 100 i gave him 20... boy he was mad as hell... but i asked for the police and in the end... we got a deal :)
Now.. it didn't struck me at first - i thought its just an accident but later on... i stared to realize - the Sofia airport is one of the dirtiest airports i've ever been to - and, my dear.. i''ve seen my share. Now... i love Bulgaria and all.. but this airport was really really dirty.
You start notice these things when you have a new phone... with a camera and all...
I was about to show you the bathrooms too but.. man those were sick.
The Budapest airport.. well.. i couldn't see much of... except that i have been checked by security like never before - i mean the dude reached under my pants man... and asked me to sit and touched my feet... i almost lost my connection...
And here i was in my way to Geneva - already a long day and the day was not to be over yet.
Have you noticed how everything in Switzerland is ... SWISS ???
And boy they love watches... and chocolate.. and ... branding all the shit with SWISS.
It was time for me to move to France and i got to the place where... hmm.. how can i put it? The day i got my phone... it opened up with a background image. It's where i ended up.
Now... i'm not sure this whole story has any meaning, i mean... everybody has a phone that does all the crazy things in the world... and yes.. the duck was great, even the wine... as she recommended it... she said it will go with the duck... and it did... i mean... hell.. i think i photographed that meal just because i was shy to ask her name - so maybe i'm ok with photographing food... for the brain.
