Bit of news about my ability to display my own pictures - which this isn't:
Stupid bloody basic mistake. Don't bother looking for the camera lead Daniel because some other thieving b****** now has my camera. I always walk in the street, never on the pavement except there were bus/vans all over the road so I pushed through on a crowded pavement. When I got though there was a 4 inch gash across the back of my bag and my camera was gone. Angry? I was ready to fight anyone who looked at me but it was my own stupid fault. I went back to my new place, which DOESN'T have wi-fi and did press ups until I could do no more to calm down. I then went to find a police station but it only dealt with 'local people problems so was then pointed in the general direction of the commiserate des police. I eventually spent about 2 hours there to lodge my complaint. To do so I was told by some horrible slime ball that I had to buy my own paper to write the complaint on then pay to have it photocopied. Each time I had to go into the market to buy it. Finally I was interviewed by a nice cop called Christophe who actually did something but then had to have his report approved and signed by slime ball. After 2 hours and a bit Christophe gave me a copy of his report for insurance and I was about to leave when slime ball (no worth capitals) called me into his office to wish me well and ask for money for his help. I dithered but it became obvious that I was not going to leave without a payment and of course I had nothing less than 5000. b****** number 2 of the day. Corruption is alive and well in Antananarivo police force.
NOT my best day and I was threwing up this morning. Mike the current score is: Beer 3, Bites 0, b******s 2+
More positively I start teaching today. I'll let you know if they fire me.
