Bus Journey: Character #1 : Kabuika’s Blog

by admin

It has been a long time since I last posted an entry on my blog.  I have been busy traveling, attending the High Holidays services and applying for a course at MUM.

And now that I have a 6-hour layover in Minneapolis, I can finally rest. I am writing this blog entry at a coffee shop near the bus station.

When I told my friends that I was going on a 21-hour bus trip across the midwest, they cringed.

“No, it won’t be that bad,” I reassured them. I knew I was going to meet interesting characters along the journey.

During my first layover in Des Moines, IA, the bus station was ugly and the TV was loud. There were few people at the station_ all blue collar_ waiting for the 11:30 pm bus connection.

There was a woman in her 60s sitting nearby. As soon as I unloaded my backpack onto a seat next to her, she started to tell me her life story. So I listened. Her ex-husband had wrecked her brand new car and she had gotten injured in the accident.

“Now all I do all day is watch my house,” said the woman, who could barely walk. “I don’t go nowhere.” she kept her 4-legged cane next to her; I had seen her use it earlier as she moved her feeble body to and from the restroom.

After the car accident, she promptly divorced her husband. ”I am never gonna get married again,” she said, shaking her head with disgust.

By now the TV was getting louder. The commercials were starting to repeat themselves as Jennifer Lopez (or a celebrity look-alike) was promoting a car.  I was starting to have a headache; I needed peace and quiet. I asked the newly divorced lady to watch over my bags as I went for a walk.
