Investments

Andy and Ivan finally meet
I met Ivan yesterday for the first time. A more laid back guy you will never meet! We went out for dinner and he carries a deck of cards in his wallet and right the way through the meal at a Thai place I was treated to a bunch of magic tricks. At least we can guarantee that this is not going to be a dull ride!

After seeing a talk by 2 girls who went from Brighton to Bangkok on a tuk tuk the 2 of us went back to his place. After a while sitting around drinking beer he says to me,

"Dude do you want to win some money?"

"Hell yeah!", I replied. If you can't trust a professional gambler with all your money who CAN you trust! why does that sound SO wrong...

So he signs me up for a casino online.

It was amazing to watch. I had no idea what he was doing, but 5 minutes later, I'm £120 richer! So if any of you have a wad of cash you feel like turning into a bigger wad of cash and fancy riding the high stakes Ivan come with the mischief seal of approval (This basically means it's completely risky and probably not a good idea - the Rickshaw Run has the mischief seal of approval too. As does skydiving and strapping your knackers to an electric fence)

So in one seat there's this TV Editor getting us on TV and in the news on one side of the world in the other this fantastically laid back (I honestly don't know how he gets anything done) gambler and magician with little me cracking crap jokes somewhere in the middle. What the heck have I signed up for this time!

P.S. - Looking out for Ivan in South Ken was always gonna be a nightmare. I mean a guy with a pair of eyes and a blue box on his head!?! Well sure as hell, Ivan is indeed just a pair of eyes a blue box. He's very mysterious....
