I miss you guys!
I really do. Buying the Bus, meeting you all, and learning to ride properly was one of the best things I've ever done.
I post here for me and you.
Me, because this is the closest thing I have to a journal. And yes it's true, I am tooting my own horn, but not in a bad way I hope.
You, because I love to needle you about what you can't get at home! Somehow I doubt you wanna hear about the weather or the novel I'm reading.
It's one hell of a life over here, the happiest I've ever been. Maybe you'll come see for yourself one day.
I don't owe the haters here an explanation, neither do I feel the need to educate the ignorant. I don't blame them though, I was ignorant once until I travelled here and lived here. But just in case you fellas have any concerns about me at all, please don't worry...
The age of consent here is 18, and they take it very fucking seriously. Girls need proof of age to get a job, the bar owners are scared shitless of making a mistake. One bar manager just spend 6 months in a Philippine shithole because an underage girl was in the bar during his shift. You can buy your way out of any kind of trouble here, including murder, but not sex with a minor. Then you're fucked ... 8 years in prison here, 8 more back home. No thanks.
Argie is a 20yr old nursing student. Believe it or not, her mother actually wants her to quit school to be a bar girl. I'm trying to keep her in school and support the family also. No one needs to warn me about the potential pitfalls, I didn't just fall off the turnip truck yesterday! Fact is, I've waited a long time to meet someone like her, I ain't giving up without a fight.
Thanks for the support fellas! Hope to see you all in September ...
TO THE MODS
No problem closing the thread, thanks for the job you do.
