Well I am here. I have had to spend about 24 hours sleeping because of being sick…but I am here. There is a lot to adjust to. I never realized how much my sense of smell would dictate what I can and cannot do. I guess we become desensitized to smells from home as we grow up.
My first experience here was making a U-Turn in oncoming traffic. Uhm….wait…no…don’t do that….But in the end they do that! Yes they make u-turns in traffic and people just go around. That is also how you cross the street. Just walk. They will swerve around you:) I cross the street like a boss already. I will add pics when that decides to act correctly. Everyone I email does not come to my computer:(
My hotel is among the natives. I am not near the tourist sites so I am getting an amazing view of local life. That life would be a lot about mopeds. They park on the sidewalks so I have to walk on the street. This creates the problem of not being hit by them.
Today I will do more exploring and adjust to the time swing (12 hours). I look forward to more adventures and starting work on Monday…yes that would be July 4th. Not in America so I get to work!
