    BACK TO EUROPE

Exit: The Stu

I sadly moved out of Room K, and went down to Room U, a five bed room, to live with a new series of problems. The inhabitants of Room U were like the cast of a bad sitcom or soap opera. There was Richard, an incomprehensible Kiwi (even by Kiwi standards) with a serious alcohol tolerance (even by hostel standards) and the inability to have an interesting conversation. There was Dai, a flamboyantly gay Aussie who worked late nights and, for my first month at the hostel stayed with his boyfriend anyway until they had a nasty breakup and the boyfriend started stalking him.

And then there was Chris and Allison, a fascinating Aussie couple. Chris is completely unsuited to hostel life--he is the opposite of a backpacker. He spends most of the time complaining about all the "cunts" at the place, clearly relishing that harsh and shocking word and its effect on those who are easily offended. The dirt of the place runs a close second in things to complain about, while the general human iniquity and depravity comes a third in his disdain. He thinks everyone is out to aggravate him (which becomes more true the more people get to know him).

Allison, on the other hand, is a lovely girl (well, okay, so she's about five years older than me, so not precisely a girl). Polite, sweet, well-read, outspoken, and generally friendly and uncomplaining, she seems--if not perfectly suited more suited than her boyfriend Chris is.
