we’ve been lucky having friends here (some from back home & some new friends from all other parts of the states if not world, living here for many yrs). they’ve been soo gracious with everything. we haven’t been a real tourist but that always happens when you don’t rely on a guide book. this is when i don’t pay attention geographically and little things like bus or train routes. its good & bad. bad when there’s a day or two, when your left to navigate your own way back to the house. it just takes a little longer. hehehe
anyways, i had a lot to say early this morning, but now i can’t remember. maybe it’ll come back to me later. sorry.
