cheap lines, baby. not workin’.

«I’m gonna call you princess!»
(Not answering)

«Thank you for the roti!»
«No problem, Princess.»
«It’s MARIE…..»
«Ok, you want me to call you that?»
«???? That’s my name…»

«I saw you walking in front of me, I was like “Wow, what a beauty! That sexy beauty looks lost, I have to help her out. You know?”»
«No.»

«I like your eyes. I know what they say. I know what you’re looking for… I know excactly what you’re looking for, I can see it.»
(Yes, I’m looking for a way out of this painful situation….)
«Mmmm, okey, and what’s that?
»
«Love. You’re looking for someone to love, someone that loves you for you. I can see it in your eyes.»
(WHAT THE F….)
«Already got one. Sry.
»

«I was praying for a nice girl to come along. And then he sent me you! God’s working in a strange way sometimes, right?»
«I arrived with an airplane, and I walked here myself…. But thanks.» 

And with this totally awkward neverending conversation I had to experience the other they in town – I’m out! I don’t know if my next host’s got WiFi, but you can follow me on facebook here, on twitter here and on instagram as @supermarie - suddenly I’m on again!

CAN YOU GUESS WHERE MY NEXT STOP IS?

The Pitch Lake / Asfaltsjøen


ph_priv, the pitch lake, Trinidad

Tjenare! I dag dro jeg til Asfaltsjøen, eller The Pitch Lake som den heter på godt karibienengelsk. Det er en helt innsjø av naturlig asfalt! Mørk skjønnhet, som sluker deg om du blir stående på den for lenge. Jeg regelrett SANK der jeg stod! Dødsspesielt. Vi har bare tre slike innsjøer i hele verden, og det blir sett på som den åttende av naturens egne underverker her på jorden. Jeg kan skjønne hvorfor, jeg har iallfall aldri sett noe sånt i hele mitt liv…

Skulle gjerne ha blitt, men nå drar klokken seg mot midnatt og jeg må pakke! I morgen sjekker jeg nemlig ut, atter en gang, og reiser videre til neste destinasjon. Der har jeg en sofa som venter på meg! Hvis sofaen har wifi snakkes vi nok derfra, ha det fint så lenge!

I dag er forresten siste stemmedag, GI MEG DIN STEMME HER hvis du syns jeg fortjener å bli kronet som “Årets blogger”, hjerte.

Hey! Today I went to the Pitch Lake. It’s a whole lake made of natural asphalt! Dark beauty, that takes you down if you’re standing there for too long. Really, I was SINKING! Really interesting. We only have three lakes like this in the entire world, and it’s known as the eight natural wonders of the world. I can see why, I’ve never seen anything like this before…

I would love to stay and chat, but the clock is running and I need to pack my things before I go to bed! I’m checking out tomorrow, yet again, and moving on to my next destination. There I have a couch waiting for me! If the couch has got wifi I’ll see you there. So long!

Oh, and today’s the last day for voting. If you feel like I deserve to be crowned as the Blogger of the year, you can vote for me here, love!
