Me at the Great Wall and a view of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China
Hi, my name is PedroL and I´m one of those characters that deals, in a daily bases, with absurdity. Would you like to read some good examples??
When I went to China, I arrived in Beijing with two bananas in my backpack that almost took me to prison!! It was during the birds flu infection and, apparently, during this period all travelers should declare any foods taken into the countries traveled. At the time I didn´t know…
Another interesting memory dates to my expat year in Nice. During the first days I was still discovering this southern city in France and I remember that I had to follow google maps, street by street, to discover a supermarket.
The amazing city of Nice
This week I lived another (let´s say) peculiar moment. Two weeks ago I renew my passport (oh yeah, new adventures about to come next year!!!) and, to receive it, I had to prove my identify by showing my ID. When I looked for it in my bag the first thing I found was my dinner: duck´s rice.
At the moment I realize the lady was waiting for my ID and I was thinking in this traditional portuguese dish I just started to laugh… Oh well, I warned you, it was quite absurd, I wonder if my readers have passed through similar situations.
