Back at home.

Am back from a week holiday with my parents since Wednesday. This trip was a real test for me, have been through so many obstacles both physically and spiritually.

Had many fights with myself and my parents, had to cope with a lot of rude fuckers who don’t even know how to talk. Seemed like Italy is popular for those people, was very surprised as I always thought Froggy people are the worst. Actually the other parts of Italy we went, Venice and Assisi were okay. Rome was the worst place I’ve ever been. I will NEVER get back to the city ever in the rest of my life. They should learn how to admire+respect their archaeological sites not to charge people 12 euros to allow them to see their derelict, poorly maintained boring looking rundown ancient buildings. How fucking shameful.

I have lost my mobile as well in Rome on the last day(typical.!) so had to go all the way doon to Croydon to deactivate the sim and now have to buy a new one which will cost me over 200 quid.

Yes, bitching bitching. But I have my rights.!

Apart from the unpleasant incidents I had in Italy, there was another emotional battle between me and my parents. It’s all about individuality they cannot accept - that I am what I am. I even thought of jumping myself to Thames river when get back, hopefully didn’t carry it into effect.

Am practically resting and recovering from this all stressful journey. Of course, there were good bits we all enjoyed and laughed. I took a lot of pics both with my Pentax P50 and Nokia N8, however only got the films to have developed as the mobile is now gone without a trace. Will share the pics as soon as I get cash on my hand so can get the pics out of the film negatives.
