Accidental Porn Stop
Trip Start May 11, 2005
320Trip End Ongoing
When I finally arrived at Batticola, I found it to be deserted. The guest house was 3 miles from the beach and looked like a aluminum tool shed
I caught the next bus outta there! I was on my way to Arugum Bay which I thought was going to be alot like Hikadwa. This bus stopped for everyone and their mother! Not only that but there were a bijjllion more check points! This was one of the longest travel days yet! A bus that goes no where, military check points every 4 miles and 100 degree heat. Shoot me in the head! One pleasant part of the trip was a good looking girl sitting next to me and telling me I was beautiful. I gotta admit I don't get that much... maybe handsome and only then if its dark and that person is drinking heavily...but beautiful? at 100 degrees.....
I had to change buses one last time to get to my final destination. As I roamed around the bus station I was told that there were no more buses going that day, so I found the nearest cheapest place to sleep. My bedroom was located in the bar, 5 feet from a TV blaring Tamil love songs. I knew this was not a good set up but I was comforted by a sign that said the bar closed at 10 p.m. I could live with that. Around 11 p.m. I awoke to hear the sound of 2 Americans going at it like Bunny's( smack my ass!) Before I was fully awake, I thought "thats funny.... I didn't see any other tourist around" Then as the sound became louder and more explicit I came to realize that all the guys outside my room were watching hardcore porn! The funny part is that they were not trying to be discreet, the volume was turned all the way up! "Oh brother" I thought and I turned my Ipod up. About an hour later I woke up again because my fan had stopped working and I was boiling! I opened up my door to get some help and both front desk men were just getting out of the shower...hmmmmmmmmmmm.....Tapioca anyone?
The next day since I was in a town that is off the beaten track I decided to check it out. People would come up to me to either stare, ask what country or to actually chat. It was alot of fun!. I watched some fishermen cast their nets then I walked to a part of town that got hammered by the Tsunami and found a temple that broke apart from the wave. After this I had a coffee a resort that had a tsunami photo album. I thought the pictures were really not that impressive until I got to the end and found photos of dead bodies covered by sheets. Damn!
Anyfart, after exploring that town I caught the next bus out! Only 10 more check points to go!
