Police and Thieves (3)

So the third occasion I was robbed by the Police…

Almaty; boozy night, walking home.

Cross the street but didn’t quite get the lights right so had to run…

… straight into the arms of the law!


No Officer I don’t carry it because if I were to lose it I could be stuck here for months while the jolly chaps at the Embassy and Passport office sort it out.

Well that was what I wanted to say.

“Niet! No passport!”


Well here we are Officer; I have my UK driving licence in my wallet.

He swooped on my wallet as it emerged from my pocket, moths escaping into the cool night air.

He grabbed my driving licence, went to his car, returned;


They disappeared instantly. When I checked my wallet I noted with some deep joy that ten thousand Tenge had also disappeared (that’s about £33 at today’s rates – not bad!)

“All the crimes committed, day by day
No-one tries to stop it in any way
All the peace makers turned war officers
Hear when I say

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
