Saturday. Wanted to work but its hard to do anything near the pool today, just browsing the interwebz. A lot of people have come here from distant places all across Miami just to enjoy the pool. Someone is just having birthday. This place is a hidden gem.
As my two laptop batteries went dead I headed to sushi bar to charge and “work” from there. Spent most of the day browsing camera forums and looking for apartments and cities of south Florida.
After sushi I went to meet bulgarian girl and go back to Freehand as she lives nearby. BedsnDrinks hostel front porch is kinda empty as from today it is restricted to drink alcohol brought from shops.
Freehand is full, like 200 people. So here I am. Single guy, legal resident, in Miami, the freakin SOUTH BEACH, 1AM +28C, at night party by the pool with crazy amounts of beautiful girls around. But..I miss my family. I miss my dog and endless driving around with him no matter where we go. Miss my friends. Miss summer parties, clubbing, DJing, watersports, wintersports, grills, night rides, street drifts on city pavement, gravel, snow or frozen lakes. Miss my car club and all summer drifts, timeattacks, dragraces, rally, and winter rallies – warming ourselves with self made fireplaces and drinking too much whiskey in -20C with all my friends dressed like eskimos in shitload of deep snow while watching our friends in fastest rally cars fly just couple feet away to cover us in snow blast and feeling the happiest persons on earth. The smell of rubber smoke, engine oil and wd-40 while wrenching our old piece-of-rust cars. I miss everything we achieved in the past 7 years as car enthusiasts. I miss the beatiful cities and amazing untouched country side. The unmatched strong culture and the people that will accomplish and do crazy stuff while struggling in one of the poorest countries in europe.
I miss home every day.
I guess I gotta be lost in the world to find myself, and way home, either it be my home country, Usa, Japan or some jungle. Time will tell. I gave away a lot of me, my passions, achievements and dreams in search for some new. But everything happens for a reason. I’m sure it will be a good one. Ive done some stupid decisions in past but I hope this will not be one and I will learn a lot. I will not waste it for nothing.
I miss you all and can’t wait for Christmas trip to visit my family and friends. 3 months done. 4 to go.
