My mind was starting to wander to if I was living my life right, if I had enough money to travel around and other general travel anxieties I can best relate to the movie Motorcycle Diaries.
One man stared at me, booze engulfing his breath, grabbed my paper and said “English English” and started running away.
I have always looked up to Mother Teresa despite what the entire world has to say. It is on my list to visit Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India. But I knew at this point in my life I wasn’t ready to go to Calcutta just yet.
It also turns out, not a lot of people ask for payphone cards so I struggled with trying to explain what I was looking for to the cashier.
I decided in a tiny fishing town in an even tinier library in Southeast Alaska: “That's IT! I'm going to go to Tokyo!”
So I bought a round trip ticket for a month in August.
