Two months ago, feeling completely unsatisfied with my life, i packed my bags and headed toward california without a word to anyone. Two days later i was in california sleeping in my car on the venice beachfront. I spent one month in cali surviving on ramen, pb&j's and hot dogs, living out of campgrounds and my car always looking for my next shower. After driving around much of southern california I managed to get my passport despite my mothers best efforts. I then headed south for greener pastures and warmer waters, Ive now been in mexico for another month, ive stayed with three different groups of people ive met on the road, which goes to show that there are nice ppl no matter where u go. On the other hand ive had my phone, my guitar, and a lot of my shit stolen. Ive been harassed by the mexican policia, paying over 5000 pesos at several different stops. Ive been ripped off and stepped on by anyone who gets the opportunity. some "friends" i thought were good ppl robbed me of over 15,000 pesos through my debit card and in person, leaving me with very little money, financially stranding me in mexico. Luckily ive made friends along the way and have a hammock on the terrace of a vacant bar to sleep in. My wallet was stolen with little money but all of my cards and my ID, Because they assumed im just a tourist which people do not like here not that i blame them considering where and how the locals live, versus where the american tourists stay. Now my car needs repairs and im stranded 6000 miles from home with 12$ in quarters. Even being careful, Bad things tend to happen when ur on the road for this long and then they snowball. Even being stuck in one place am happier here, and i can now speak enough spanish to communicate with the locals, and i am no tourist, living far from the resorts and beaches. i would like to continue learning, about life, the spanish language and culture, playing the guitar, and making friends, and for now thats all i can do. Idk if or when ill come home or how i will afford it, but for now id like a warm meal and a cold drink
