Day 23 – Part Deux – Komedy of Errors

8 Oct

So today it’s freaking cold here in Berlin. And it’s not that pleasant dry cold that we have in Ottawa – it’s a wet, damp, windy, chill-you-to-your-bones kind of cold. When I packed for this trip, I brought with me the absolute minimum gear I would need. I didn’t even bring a proper jacket. I figured if I was starting out in Rome, I would not need it as it would be stupid hot – and I was right. In fact, I was pretty lucky until the past couple of days when it started to get cool.

So today I’ve got a busy day of touring around all planned and I need to get a proper jacket. It’s sunny out but cold. So I go online and I find this used clothing shop. It’s way on the other side of the city so I take like 3 different subways and a streetcar to get there. And on top of all this I get lost between the subways station and the store. So by the time I arrive I’m freezing my ass off.

The store is nice but kinda expensive. Plus it’s mostly women’s clothes. There’s only a small section for men’s stuff and the coat selection is almost non-existent. So on top of all this most of the coats are way to big for me and they don’t accept credit cards. I stupidly did not think about this and I have only 15 euros with me. It’s freezing out so I’m not going to a bank machine. So long story short there are only two coats less than 15 euros that actually fit me. Here is the one I choose.

I’ll probably ditch it when I find a better one, but until then, this is me.

Calling me the Gay Terminator is probably insulting to gays as well as terminators.

        I seem to have a faint recollection of telling you about a time when I was freezing my ass off in the damp cold of Berlin for 10 days. And I was equipped with my Finnish wintergear….
