Dinnae ken which board to post, if its gets deleted, so be it.

What do the occasional " *** " s mean? e.g.

>fter the search of our belongings they found my second passport which I have declared lost back home in order to get a new one. Although it had a difference and it was a missing page where the stamp of the *** ban appeared in the end of my three month visit in year 2000.

>They also tried to threaten us, saying that if we wouldn’t behave on the plane, the Russian Omon police will meet us at the airport in Moscow and show where the lobsters hibernate.

I suspect the meaning of this metaphor is lost in translation.

I thought it might mean more in the sense of 'get the shit kicked out of you' than 'sleeping with the fishes'.

It means I prefer not to disclose, or use this later. For example the best hiding place for docs.

Well I just finished reading the whole thing. It was pretty interesting, OP, so credit for that, but I can't help thinking you and your brother are cunts for just using up asylum infrastructure for no reason other than your entertainment (assuming your intro is honest), or that you ended up in prison and didn't even phone home at some point, all in the aim of an extended adventure at the expense of practically everyone else in the countr[ies].

Here is the bunker where I used to live from December until March, Lausanne, mentioned in the story.

You have the right to say what you think. Thanks for sharing the opinion.

Refugees descending into the bunker. Thats the one in Nyon, our first one.

The underground bunker dormitories. The one in Nyon was more spacious and clean than in Lausanne. Some hostels are worse.
They have those bunkers in every town, build in case of nuclear attack by the Mordor.

Pic- this looks very much like the temporary bay cell in Champ-Dollon, main prison in Geneva. It's actually one of the most overcrowded in Switzerland. Just recently there was a extension being build..
Champ-Dollon is mentioned in the story as well.

And this is Kloten, in Zurich. Decent single cells, not enough food. Can buy Nutella though and other edible things in the prison canteen. In some other prisons, inmates manage to steal even from the shop. In Kloten, they distribute stuff themselves according to your order-list, just like amazon for you.
Stayed in sept-december. More details in the story

Fair enough, this is Switzerland. ChampDollon wasn't that sophisticated though. With my sentence it was more like a visit than a proper term as we know it.

Interesting stuff OP, but I have to say that an awful lot of it is quite difficult to read due to poor grammar and wording. It might be a good idea to tidy it up a bit, especially if you fancy taking this gonzo lark further (and I'm sure you could). Drafting is shit, but it does pay off.

Yeah, this is what put me off too. I'm all for the prison memoirs and Dispatches lark as well but you need an editor or at least someone to proofread, mate. There is a story here that's worth tidying up, imo.

Tnx for suggestion, brit-anon. Written by a foreigner.
But too busy now indeed. I might agree on editing that specific style in the beginning.

Anyways, brit-anons, I'll be checking the board for any relevant and adequate questions if there will be any in the future. First I thought of 4chan-ing the story but couldn't find any relevant boards.

Also from the story-Hotel Colosseum, stayed overnight, free of charge, peaceful. Very high fence but manageable. Normally it costs 10 euros during the day. In the morning carabinieri came to throw us out and that's it.
I wish we had a camera.

Wrong, just wasn't mentioned probably. We were sending cards+photoes from Nyon. I think I even managed to call while inside, they sell cards there too.
