We are in Marseille. I,ve never been so worried about safety as I do now. This city is so dirty, old n seedy-looking, we,re told to always be careful because Asians are targets of mugging n stabbing; they think we,re all rich Japanese. I just want to get out of here asap n that,s not until tomorrow afternoon when we take the train to Genoa. Because we didn,t make bookings for accomodation, we are having a hard time finding them n I am really genuinely worried. Pls pray for us, this is not a pity story. We have no accomodation in Cinque Terre on 3 n 4 July, all full so we are thinking of making day trip from La Spezia but accomodation in La spezia is full too.
This is no longer fun. I never thought Europe would be so unsafe but apparently south Europe is. And it,s SO expensive. Two persons accomodation n food, on a very tight budget, would cost about 120 euros n with transport n incidentals about 150 euros so that,s RM480 to 600 PER DAY. In 10 days it,ll be RM5000 to 6000 n tt,s the minimum, other expenses not included. We are travelling 14 days. I am considering busking. Serious. But I don,t dance or sing. Maybe Yi can do tt n I,ll pass the hat around.
