Who needs television when you have the everyday entertainment that comes from living in a foreign country?
Some things I observed today:
-An S.U.V. drives up on the sidewalk and parks without even using a blinker or any other kind of signal.
-An old woman, walking with two canes, takes one of them and, sticking one end into a trashcan, uses it to compact the contents.
-Fashion watch: Old ladies wear huge bows in their hair, and everyone wears socks with sandals.
-I’m walking home and some construction workers are coming through the archway trying to transport some pipes on a backhoe. They’re blocking the way for passengers and motorists. I’m annoyed, but coming through the archway behind them is a little boy grinning away, just delighted to witness this macho work in action!
