At language school,,, finally!!. Trekked through torrential rain to get here! Student res is fairly shoddy, paid 100 dollars for sheets and towels, neither of which i have received yet!!
Oops,, turn out the wooly blanket on i slpet on was not the sheet as i had previously thought,, but a blanket concelaing the sheets below....
After an intense round of classes and orientation,, it was off down the rabbit hole.
Here are a few things you probably didnt know about BA:
The pavements are treacherous. They can cause you to loose balance and subsequently break ones left shoe (much to the amusement of Martha!)
There is no point looking for "cajeros" ie atm machines as they simply do not exist. Instead you have to get to the bank before the 3 oclock closing time if you want to get any out.
Bank doors are cunning. They do not open by pushing or pulling,, instead you must swipe youre card at the door.
If you do break one shoe,. a soft pouch works well as temporary footwear.
Waiters in the microcentre are very nice. One such waiter, when he saw my shoe asked if he could fix it. He promptly ran out and returned with glue and fixed it for me. I gave him 10 pesos for the trouble. My meal cost the as much.
"choripan" or sausage sandwiches sell for only 1 pound. They keep you full for the whole day.
Mary (the mother of God) wears bling. See the national cathedral where she is decked out in white crystal wedding dress imitation.
Friends are easily made, just ask Martha, she had the singing student attendant at the cathedral chat to her for hours.
