I propose Paris - We just had riots in the suburbs. Lovely sights - burned cars and rubbish bins. Two days ago I got caught in a shopping mall. Dark handsome Young men brandishing bats and knives and a few running pittbulls, police cars, the security swearing at them in Algerian. We had to stay inside for what seemed an eternity. I got fed up and left. Nothing happened. Had to walk home bacause no tram hahahahahaha.
Seriously Marissa, if You decide to come I'll come to meet You at the Airport. If I'm late because of transport delays, You just stand wearing the silver bent ring, with Your luggage, next to the gum ball machine. I'll book You into a two star hostel in Barbes. It is two star on paper only but the location is great and these places are full of illegals. Here the state has to pay their rent and public transport as well as medical and dental fees. You might as well stay as an illegal.
We could go to a shisha bar. It's men only but here anybody is wellcome as long as they pay. It is quite sad and depressing and full of old bald MENA men, but not bad really.
And we could hire a raî singer. There is one famous Algerian one - cheb Mami, google him. Lovely tenor voice. I have to check whether he is out of prison. He got a French woman pregnant (they don't know what a condom is). Tried to make her have an abortion but she refused. Lured her to Algeria, sequestrated her and had women beat her tummy in order to induce an abortion. She survived and came back, managed to record a conversation and took him to court. It is in his wikipedia biography.
We can visit Bobigny townhall where foreigners apply for visas. This is where I got mine. There are two queues - one for Algerians and one for all the others and this is not a joke. Guess which one is longer? The toilets are of the Turkish type - a hole in the ground and this is not a joke either. I have never seen another building with this type of toilets in Western Europe. Maybe to put the visitors at ease? Chelsea should come to have a look too.
The Central mosque is a must. My local market has fresh fruits and vegetables, some exotic. I don't know the names in French. The vendors don't know either, they hardly speak French. All are from Algeria and Egypt. We'll have a breakfast of Msemen. Lots of thieves so I put my money in my bra and do not carry a bag. I live in a posh subburb - Sarkozy and his second wife Cecilia got married and divorced here. Sarkozy was a mayor here. The most common name for a newborn in my area is now Mohamed. Some people have more children.
Marais is very refreshing - Jewish businesses and homosexuals. Hence the constant threats and sadly vandalism and attacks.
We can even go to an ethnic nightclub. Never been in one. Don't know whether women go to this sort of place but one never knows.
So many boys and men harass me, oups, chat me up every day. Pity they can't speak French. I pretend not to speak it too. The worst part is I understand what they say. If they look like they are after papers I say I am from Afghanistan. Some ask whether Afghanistan is in the European Union. You will love it.
Anybody else interested?
