366 Days of Writing Prompts – Day 82
You’re stranded in a foreign city for a day with no money
and no friends. Where do you go; what do you do?
If it’s only for one day, I can go without food, so no need to worry there. I would seek out every public spot – libraries (possibly water fountains in there?), parks, free museums and art studios, check out any local scenes where there could be street performers, artists, musicians, and the like. I would soak up as much free stuff as the city had to offer. And maybe, just maybe someone will offer me a drink in a bar or coffee shop if I sat there long enough reading a book. I would hang out in their hospital waiting rooms (possibly water fountains again?) and the airports, do a bit of people watching, sketching, or writing. And as night fell, I would go to the most romantic spot in the city and watch the sunset. Who says you need money or friends to soak up the flavors of a foreign city?
How about you, dear readers? If you were stranded and no money, what would you do? Share your thoughts with me in comments.
