Well after eight months my Latin American life came to an end, when I left Panama and headed to San Fran. It was so hard leaving Bocas, Phee and I nearly cried. But anywho we ended up in San Fran and can I tell you it was a massive shock to the system. I hated it, I just wanted to go back. It has taken some time ajusting, i still go to speak to people in Spanish, I walked into a mexican restaurant today where they were speaking Spanish and it was the best thing since Christmas. I also still have not gotton used to the fact that I can actually flush toilet paper down the loo know, its amazing how those little habits stick with you.
However my life back in the Western World has not been all that bad. After having a really shit day on our first day, things picked up. Our first day here, we walked around all confused and just taking it all in. We went to this cheap hairdresser and had the worst haircut of our lives, but what can you do. So we took ourselves for some retail therapy, where Phee nearly got mugged. So we took ourselves to bed after that and decided things just were not going to get any better. But yesterday we thought we would start fresh, so we went to Alcatraz and walked over the Golden Gate (such touros). We are staying on Broadway, just around the corner from little Italy and China Town, so the food is amazing. I am going to go to London looking larger than life at this rate. Today we went to the Park, and then found this wicked street, Haight Ashwood. its just like Brunswick Street, full of opys, retro stuff and jewelry stores from Tibet. So offcourse Abbie had a field day and will be paying of her credit card until she is 30. But at least I will be in fashion in London, thats if i have enough room to get it all there.
San Fran is actually a really nice city, it reminds me of Melbourne heaps. So I miss everyone at home more than ever now. I am off to Las Veags tomorrow, which should be good, one can only hope I hit the jack pot!!! Ill let you know.
To all my buddies from Bocas, I miss you all and wish i was still there, but Ill be seeing most of you in London.
Anywho peace out!!!
Love Always and Forever Abbie
