They robbed us
They stole € 500 from us.
Sure, certainly, that occurred and we don’t rely it till now as a result of the reality didn’t make sense to do it earlier than. First as a result of we have now lengthy since handed it and second as a result of we didn’t wish to fear anybody about one thing so simple as cash.
It occurred throughout our first week of touring by Asia, the primary gents. And it was a bitch like a home, however fortunately it was nothing greater than cash, a foolish theft, the form of handbook, nothing harmful.
How did they rob us?
Properly, one good evening of a day after we believed that everybody was good and fantastic (as a result of everybody appeared to be in these elements of the world), Jesper went out at evening to purchase greens at our typical greengrocer from Hamid, the great man who comes out giving kisses within the images, a beautiful man. Whereas he was returning, a policeman stopped him and requested for the papers, Jesper gave them to him even in his world of roses and unicorns. He then requested her to verify the bag she was carrying for medicine.
I make some extent right here and I touch upon some issues to place you in place:
- Since in these international locations the penalties for narcotics are such, Jesper thought it was one thing routine
- As my pal is German, anybody who wears a uniform has supreme energy over others, it’s one thing unconscious with which they develop
- Since life was fantastic, it by no means occurred to him to assume badly.
Let or not it’s clear that I perceive all this, it might have occurred to me and to anybody.
When he returned the papers, he had already eliminated the cash, which he carried in a again pocket of the bag, he checked the cash and “gave it again” and in all that, the truth is that he didn’t do it and by the point Jesper realized it it was too late. He tried to chase him with out success.
What was Jesper doing with € 500 within the “little bag”?
Properly, the reality is nothing specific, the difficulty is that in case you didn’t know (if not, we depart you with this publish on preparations to journey to Iran), you may solely take money to Iran, the playing cards are ineffective, not even to pay Not even to get cash, so we had gone out with our € 50 payments around the globe and, in an oversight and forgetfulness, we forgot to get these € 500 out of there (fortunately we had them in two elements).
This provides the next complication, nor we had sufficient cash for our keep within the nation. In any case, let’s return to the place we left off.
Okay, what occurred subsequent ..
Jesper got here again to the hostel a beast like I’ve by no means seen him, shitting himself for having been an fool and whipping himself in such a approach that he reached factors of absurdity. However, as I’m Colombian, the one factor I might assume is that it was lucky that it was solely € 500 and never a knife, as a result of every kind of macabre prospects handed by my head that fortunately didn’t occur. So I calmly counted the cash we had left and tried to reassure him. By then the police had arrived on the hostel and we spent an hour filling out a kind in Farsi with the assistance of the proprietor. The factor stayed there.
The next days grew to become a procession in police places of work, which gave rise to a couple different loopy issues that undoubtedly made our go to to the town one thing much more particular, amongst them having met probably the most worthy Bollywood policeman in historical past (from proper, the one factor I might think about was that he was on a television sequence after we had been going to see him, I want he might have stolen a photograph), find yourself in a spherical of facial recognition (which clearly was not going wherever) and meet an cute man with a chemical and laboratory devices store within the metropolis heart (it helped us within the police the primary time we went) wherein the best product success is glass pipes for smoking crack, one thing that we clearly didn’t know and we We discovered after seeing how little tubes had been being offered as if there have been no tomorrow and crossing, by mistake and the fault of google maps, the murkiest road on the earth stuffed with junkies (too excessive to be harmful fortunately) in the future desirous to shorten the highway to go to him.
Come on, the factor was entertaining and gave loads.
In any case, we continued and 15 months later we had been within the Philippines sunbathing, so the world didn’t finish and we stopped getting bitter after a couple of days. After all, be very attentive with cash and pretend cops as a result of it might have been right here like wherever else.
As an anecdotal truth, Jesper returned from his go to to the greengrocer with three eggs, two of them damaged after the chase. Don’t see what dearer egg.
