Murwillumbah-Sydney by SMS, part one

IMG_2244 [lang_cs]Velke SMS vypraveni z Australie pokracuje! Nasleduje prepis SMS konverzace, kterou jsem vedl s Klarou na trase Murwillumbah-Sydney. Neni to zadne velke literarni dilo, ale sve kvality to ma (podle me aspon jednu kvalitu; musel jsem to vytukat na tom blbem levnem mobilu, bez ceskeho slovniku). A nemusim ted aspon vymyslet, jak popsat me posledni tydny na stopu v Australii.[/lang_cs][lang_en]The tall SMS tale continues! Below comes a transcript of a messaging conversation with Klara on the way from Murwillumbah to Sydney. It is not a great literary work, but it has its charm {at least one, as I had to type it on the crappy cheap cell phone without Czech dictionary}. And I needn`t think how to put my last hitchhiking weeks in Australia into a story. [/lang_en]

I was trying not to get lost in the wide choice of Indian tv channels for a whole afternoon, evening and night. I got a decent room with „thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from“(Pink Floyd-Nobody Home, The Wall). I was saved by Mr Murugan`s temple from a total braiwash. Great food and fruit from street vendors helped too.[/lang_en]

Proper customs check in Darwin

[lang_cs]Celnici si me poradne proverili, ale nakonec me do Australie pustili. Nejvetsi problem asi maji s tim, jak si to cestovani financuju. Nakonec jsem se musel priznat, ze drogove kartely me neplati. Docela jsem byl nervozni, protoze se moc vyptavali. Prestoze jsem jim rikal pravdu, tak to bylo neprijemne. Ted je to za mnou a vrham se do horka australske pouste. Jdu na stopa. Z Darwinu pravdepodobne na vychodni pobrezi do Townsville. Na ceste moc mest neni, takze spojeni na me bude jenom mobilni (bude-li signal). Me australske cislo je +61/449796795.
[/lang_cs][lang_en]I was throughly inspected at the Australian border, but let in in the end. The most serious problem for them is the way I fund my travels. I was forced to admit that I am not financed by drug gang bosses. I was rather nervous as they had too many questions. Although I was telling the truth, it was uncomfortable. Now it is over and I can thrust myself to the scorching desert. I am off to get a lift. From Darwin probably to Townsville along the East coast. There are just a few towns on the way, so I will be available only on my cell phone +61/449796795, if signal alows.[/lang_en]

Remembering Chennai

IMG_0459 [lang_cs]Pet dnu u Prema, kamarada ze skoly v Namakkalu.
Pro upresneni: V roce 2004 bylo do Jizni Indie vyslano 21 studentu ze Zapadoceske Univerzity. Samozrejme jsem mezi nimi nemohl chybet. Karnal(=Prem) s nama travil vetsinu casu, dokonce nas vsechny pozval na veceri k nemu domu. Trpelive nam vsechno vysvetloval a choval se k nam velice slusne. Protrpel nase evropske manyry mnohem klidneji, nez nekteri z nas manyry indicke.[/lang_cs][lang_en]5 days at Prem`s – a friend of school in Namakkalu. To explain: In 2004, 31 West Bohemia University students went to India, of course including me. Karnal = Prem was with us most of the time, he even treated us a dinner at his place. He was patiently explaining everything to us and was really kind to us. He empathicaly survived our western manners, with much more calm than we accepted the Indian ones.[/lang_en]
