Moving to a new country has its ups and downs. Even with all of the events and activities the school plans, it can be difficult. I really miss my family and friends. Making true friends takes time and effort. Although all of the people I work with and have met so far are really nice, right now, it just feels like a lot of small talk and polite conversations. All of that is great, but I just miss hanging out with people I know and who know me. So when I woke up this morning, I planned on just running some errands and coming back to clean up my apartment. Nothing too adventurous.
However, as I was eating breakfast, one of the new teachers called me to find this market that everyone has been talking about. I thought to myself, why not? So we met at this cafe and headed out. Then a funny thing happened that made us both smile. Someone asked us for directions and we were able to show him the way. I gotta admit, it felt good. After that, we found the large outdoor market with delicious fruits and vegetables. The basil smelled amazing and the prices were crazy cheap. I almost felt bad paying about 50 cents for some potatoes, but who am I to argue? All and all, it was a good day today.
The photos below are from my photo trip yesterday. I swear that every inch of this place is a photo opportunity. Amazing.
