I'm in Namibia! 100 Countries Around the World!

London, 17 Jan 2011


Last more than fifteen days I’m not feeling well.  Christmas and New Year I spent fighting fever, temperature, cold and cough. It is so painful feel that my mother is far from me and if she was here she could give me a proper touch which relieves the pain. I didn’t tell to my friends all over the world that Christmas and New Year celebrations where not as jolly and happy to me as they should have been, because I didn’t want them to worry about me. I pray to God for their good and happy life for coming New Year. I’m writing you, all my readers and friends sharing my life history, the good times and bad times, because I know that you are all with me and I am with you too.


When natural disasters are coming to Earth, they break the system and natural flow of nature. That is different for a tsunami, for a tornado, for a flood. If it is coming to human life it destroys the body, mind, soul, intellect and beyond. In our life always good times and bad times are coming. Good people and bad people. Sometimes people don’t want to know, what is other people value, because they don’t want to know. You can’t change them, because they don’t want to change. They don’t know what they’re doing and how it can affect other people. Sometimes thinking friendly manner not always give us the same reaction. Last few days gave me fear and disbalanced my inner-self and inner energy. It happened because of few people and their way of thinking which is too different from mine. I’m feeling that I’m losing a lot of energy, forgetting how I was laughing before. It was like a stroke, that I got this fear to come close to people now. I always feel God is always inside the human being. I’m asking to my God: “Could you tell me why it happens in our life?” Answer: “It’s wanted to happen, that’s why”. Now I decided everything that’s coming to us comes for a reason, maybe it’s a knowledge! Yes, it is. Thank you, God, for this time and greater knowledge.


One day me and one friend where travelling in London. We were walking on the bank of the river Thames wondering around and taking pictures when suddenly both of us felt desperate to use the rest room. We started to look for some public toilets around, but we couldn’t find any at that moment. Somehow we were passing by one hotels in central London. There at the front door was a door man, we asked him if he would be so kind and let us to use the rest room in the hotel and he kindly let us in. When I got out he showed me the hat he was wearing, he said people used to sit on hats like that one while watching the opera and after that they were wearing them. He showed that you can fold it easily into one small peace. A magic hat.
Then he showed us to the conference room. Few more people from the hotel staff joined us there. We took some pictures together.
It is one of the oldiest hotels in London, very nicely decorated and it keeps that cosy spirit within, even though I can imagine it’s one of the most luxurious hotels.
We were very grateful to them for their kindness.


Again I’m starting to laugh with happiness and peace.
I came with one friend to visit Darius and Martynas in Leyton, Eastern London.  Both guys are from Lithuania. When I stepped in through their door I felt like I’m awaited here. Before I came to their place I was feeling very bad and disballanced. Visiting those two guys was very much relieving to me, I told to Darius that day that I’m taking positive energy from him. He didn’t mind that, he was smiling when I said that.
It is a great experience I’m gathering and very nice time I have with all of them. We are cooking, spending time together, sharing thoughts and experience. Both guys are always smiling and open-hearted which makes me feel very comfortable and open.


One evening some friends took me to meet their friends that were coming from Finland. Freddie and Ninna, they are photography teachers back in their country. It was their business trip to London, so they were tired, however, they found some time to spend with us and it was nice meeting them, have some tea and talk.
While sitting drinking tea Ninna drew a drawing. It’s very simple, with some animals from the wild, but the way she draw it makes it special,  showed how open-hearted and child-alike she is. When we were walking the city later on she started to jump with me like a child.
Freddie wrote something in Finnish, it was interesting to see how the written language looks like. A pity I didn’t have much time to get to know them better, but I hope I will see them again and that we’ll share our thoughts. It is a great memory.
