Today is a beautiful Spring day with the sun out. I am sitting here wishing for a time Machine to take me back to April 27, 1981. On that day I had been 10 days in South Africa. I was renting a room on Mark Avenue in the Johannesburg suburb of Norhtcliff. It was a holiday. My landlord Barbara left early to do errands. I spent the day walking around the beautiful hills that were the suburb or Northcliff. It's still beautiful today. The famous American financial commentator Suzie Orman bought a $1 million dollar apartment here.
I came back to the house sunburned and exhausted but very happy. I got a call from Barbara. She asked me to join her at at a party in another suburb. I got the directions and drove over in my rental car.
Over thirty-one years ago South Africa was the bastion of Apartheid and the scourge of many nations around the world. The European and Asian population living there were sure that one day the Soviet Navy would show up and land marines to conquer South Africa. The US and Europe would not risk World War III to save South Africa, as the conventional wisdom went then. (Ironically when all of the old Soviet archives were open, no plan was ever found for an invasion of South Africa.)
There was an attitude among the affluent and better educated population as follows:
"Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we might die!"
Every night was a party and people lived each day as if it were their last.
I arrived at the party and started to mingle with the various people. I struck up a conversation with a very attractive young lady. Eventually we landed on the floor. She unzipped my pants and proceeded to perform oral sex on me. All of the other people at the party formed a circle around us and watched. I could not believe what was happening. I offered no resistance. I t all just seemed natural.
If only I could find a time machine and go back to that magical day!
Do not worry Elena I would have found you later
