if i only knew, how long and complicated the process of obtaining my full oz driving license was going to be, i think i may have given up on it all together. so i am very glad that i began this adventure blind as a bat, and i persisted on keeping on going on, and not to give up when my driving license story began unfolding itself with the speed of a lazy snail with a lot of bridges to cross..
to obtain a full oz driving license is a long process as it is, one has to do a road rules test, and then with a recieved L driving licence, max speed 80km/h drive up to 150 hours accompanied with a fully licensed driver, after that it's time for the driving test, when passed, a P (provisional) driving licence is issued for a year and a half with a max speed of 90km/h, after which is another P..
to obtain a full oz driving license was an even longer and more complicated process, just because i am physicaly disabled, and i cannot use my feet i drive with hand controls. so i had to do my license only via some government company, helping disabled people. on my first interview i was told, that i could obtain my driving license only if i was willing to look for work and attend some course about how to get work. well, i did not have a choice, i wanted my driving licence so much, that i agreed to all i was asked to do. i also have to had a 10 to 15 hours of driving hours with special driving instructor, and and and... and it all took ages.. and therefore it is a very long story and i may write a little book about it, one day.. i would just like to add the ending of it: after almost 5 years i finally got my full driving licence. i would be only on my first P if mango had not persuaded me to get my good old czech licence renewed. i did not believed that they would give it to me, as it was not renewed for over twenty years. so i skipped all peees and i can drive 110km/h.
i passed my third driving test on mango's father's birthday day, 15th of may, with an excelent score, and i got a lot of good driving compliments by the instructor, and i could see he was realy impresed with my driving skills, and in the office in front of others he told me that i could be a driving instructor with a score like that. hmmm, i may think about it, i replied.
so, i was as happy as could be, and mango, who went with me and waited for me while i was on the test, was happy, and gave me a big hug, immediatly after i had finished the test. - i was told i had passed as soon as i had parked the car and stopped the engine. so i had a huge smile on my face, and that is how mango knew i had passed the test. so me and mango we celebrated with a mighty durian and so instead of the usual one a day we enjoyed two very tasty durians.
and me and mango we had another almost winter swim, yes it was a lovely sunny calm warm day, and this time the ocean was freezing cold. so mango had 3 mini swims and me one bit bigger mini swim. and surely, it was worth it. i got an amazing buzz and i felt so amazingly fresh and energized. we also took a fair few pictures, so i will post one day some in my new photoblog. where i posted my last pictures (date)
and yes, of course, me and mango are enjoying yummy sweet colourful beautifuly scented raw fresh fruit, full of life giving sweet beauties. oh, yum, yum, yum, we are sharing every day magic durian, and very sweet juices from grapes, black for about 2 weeks and then back to green ones, pineapple apple orange banana kiwi juices, pineapple apple kiwi juices, and almost daily pealed tomato, pealed lebanese cucumbers, and red or green hot chili mix. today mango brought a box of red grapefruits and we had after a long break a very sweet and yummy grapefruit orange juice. before that we had at 13:00 a green grape juice, (my breakfast) and an hour later we munched on a creamy and liquery durian. and three hours later we had our popular tomato cucumber chili mix, mango always with avo, plus he enjoys a few avos just as is and sometimes he mashes them with banana or grated apple and that is seriously yummy, mango at times gives me a tiny spoonful taste of it, but i am remaining avocado free. i am happy with my improved digestion, and that is very important to me. i am glad that i am not really tempted by avo even though i love its taste.. i can easily overcome the rare slight cravings, and even though i live surounded by it, i am not tempted. i am trully enjoying every tiny spoonfull of yummy avo mango gives me at times, and it is enough to satisfy me.
tomorrow night i am off to prague
life is beautiful
sweet green oz grapes and even more sweet thai durian
