Day 124

Cant think of anything else but the damn car, how unlucky I got. Went to South Vape, the owner gave me a ride in his 5 liter Hyundai Genesis, fast and luxury. They also got lucky to rent a private backyard parking spot right in the heart of southbeach for 50 bucks, now that is real gold!
Took my bmw for a drive to do some pics for junkyard sales, went to Pelican Island. The place was criwded with people pulling out their boats from water.

Driving in sport mode the car is fast! I love it! Its just it has so many gremlins under the hood that it doesnt justify the cost of keeping it. Found a parking spot near Freehand and walked to Sushi Express for dinner. I have a bike and a car but I am walking 15 blocks lol because Freehand location is just nothing and I dont want to lose the parking spot, I paid 20 usd for city parking previous night.

Day 123. Disaster

Kind of. Went around Miami to shop for some parts and repairs. It was in Wynwood and thought this could be a cool background for the beamer..

And just minutes after the pic the reverse gear of transmission stopped working. Googled around and its a common problem for these BMWs. Fixing reverse costs more than the car :(
Drove around Miami, experienced what its like to be in the typical Florida rain shower when cruising on highway – scary!
Went to Dolphin Mall for dinner with my friend.

image

So unlucky for the car. Filled up tires for my bike, parked the car in city garage (rolling in spot backwards downhill) and cycled back to Freehand. 2am still full of people. But I dont like this place. Its like a fancy party with some jazz music and where is fancy party there are ho ho hi christmas girls. Hate the atmosphere. Most people speak spanish and are not from the hostel..

Day 122

Woke up and went to do the registration – my first car in USA! The insurance and registration was more than the car itself. But I just was lucky to buy it cheap.
We went to visit South Beach Classics – car marketplace with 347 exotic cars!

image

After that I finally drove my own car to office. After work traveled to Sunrise to my friends tuning garage.

image

Then went for dinner. Was back in South Beach at 3am and went to sleep at 5am. Have to wake up early so I dont have to pay for parking, this is a big issue in Miami.

Day 120

image

Went for a morning walk to clear my head.
Spent half day looking for insurance rates for car. Lowest you can get in Miami is 1600 a year. And then there is parking. In south beach you cant get monthly rate in city parking (80$) if you dont actually live there. And when you do you have to change your drivers license address too as it shows address on the card. Wanted to look at one nice and cheap BMW, but it is 2 hours away and either the owner doesn’t really speak english ir it is just pure scam.
Some girls said in Key West they got some jellyfish burns in water. No serious burns though.
Went to sleep early, tomorrow is check out time and I have no idea where I will go.
Brought some sagra4u.com medicine to south vape owners, they have caught a bad cold..

Day 119

Slept just 5 hours. Got breakfast, brought breakfast for bulgarian girl while she was sleeping. Later woke her up and we went for a quick drive around northern miami beach.

image

Later brought her to another hotel where she checked in and waiting for her friend. I dont know if its her boyfriend or what. Still she offered me to go to NY with her for the weekend.
Brought the car back to rental and went to sleep for a while. Worked just 2 hours, local bulgarian girl came over to drink with me. Talked avout everything , a bit of her relationships and mine nonexistant relationsgips. Its great that I can meet a lot of nice people but then again its sad when they leave, and everyone is here just for a limited time. I need someone.

Day 118

Woke up with a bit of hangover, long time no talk with Jack gives surprises even we drank half of 0.7. I ordered car rental. It was time to make another try at DMV to get a license. The traffic in south beach is really bad.  I brought the bulgarian girl to downtown and continued my way to DMV in westchester. Did the theory exam with 10 mistakes out of 50 questions, 10 is the maximum allowed :) Tutns out they didnt do driving tests so they said I should arrange a test on next day at other office. I tried my luck and went there instantly and got there 10minutes before they stopped accepting driving tests. And I passed it!! I was the last customer in there!
At the DMV met the friend I rented camera body from.
Picked up the girl and we went to various places, most notably Key Biscayne which is a beautiful place and all the way to it.

On our way wback we stopped at Rusty Pelican restaurant and Bayside..

I have some past that I need to forget and hanging out with sweet girls like her help me better. Except her looks remind me of one of my ex girlfriends whom I reallt hate and would not like to be reminded of, she was the biggest nightmare and mistake. Anyway, we went back to south beach and continued Jack&music and went to sleep by 4am. I didnt work today at all. But I got a drivers license!!
I lent some money to a guy who used to stay in the hostel and now is basically homeless.
I donated some money to local car club for organizing a meet next month. I know how it feels to spend all your time organizing an event and then putting money in it out of your own pocket.

Day 117

Sunday. Time for some work.
To my surprise a sexy chick from Bulgaria joined our room, had a talk with her, shes a J1 student as most of current Miami visitors,suggested some places. She is 90% copy in looks and voice as the other bulgarian chick that lives in Miami.
Did my work hours and feel better. Got some whiskey and coke :D

image

Spent the night drinking jack til 5am and listening music. And listening the bulgarian chick sing along, she has amazing voice!

Day 116

So I thought I would work on a saturday since I didn’t work on Friday. Wrong.
Another rainy day.

image

Spent half day doing photos and a lot of time just chilling outside and thinking about future plans. Occasional chatting with some friends about the subject.
Could be another quite boring day, but one of the girls working in the hostel finally agreed to go out for a drink so we went to ocean drive.

image

After first beer her friends joined us. They were really cool even the guy is a fan of metal music. We drink some scotch and bourbon and generally had entertaining talks so it turned out great.
Back at the hostel I messed around pics and internet up til 6am. Time to go to sleep before breakfast is served.
