« without a destination, walking | home | overflowing with sketchiness »

again; arabic. out.

the bus to oslo left at 0900. an uneventful ride back to oslo, the draining feeling still with me. back to the same bus station. i'd decided to try a different hostel for these two days in oslo; much more central. i learned later from a roommate that best western runs the hostel. right there with my gps guide. ronnie, from scotland, a very nice down to earth guy who told me fun stories about prague. other roommates were quite sketchy [algerians, ronnie had learned; seemed they were conducting some elicit operation, using our hostel room as headquarters]. i went out and bought a pizza; brought it back to the room. sketchy roommates came in and out. one had two cell phones; phone 01 started ringing with some electro.beatbox ringtone; looked at the caller id and decided not to answer; kept ringing [udzte udzte]. phone 02 started ringing; lots of yelling in french. phone 01 again; arabic. out. ronnie and i went to sleep. sketchiness continued throughout the night; 0300 entry with lights and much noise. this was one of the few days when i hadn't taken any pictures. i hadn't felt like taking pictures. i felt like resting.
