I finally got my camera back on Friday. I was going to celebrate by taking pictures of myself on the bus to London, but I made friends instead.
There was some guy in a business suit sitting directly behind me.
"I think parasites trump diseases," I told him, pretty much out of nowhere, "I think they are much more interesting. I think I'd prefer to get a parasite over having malaria. Then again, at least malaria is an interesting disease. I mean, when you get pneumonia, does anyone really care? But malaria's sort of like rabies- it's a disease you can brag about!"
The guy in the business suit raised an eyebrow at me, not sure whether to laugh or change seats under the pretense of having uncontrollable flatulence. The guy sitting across the aisle from us didn't hold back though, and started cracking up.
We became fast friends.
This, however, is easily my new favourite picture ever.
Nando also threatened to shave off his beard. I think he's bluffing.
