Sliding Home

Waiting to go to school with a bunch of Nepalese kids, getting a few rides from some overly gracious friends, a fair amount of running, late buses, late for work, missing dinner with friends and a LONG walk. A few highlights from day one.

Nothing like being the newcomer. I had to get help swiping my bus card and breeched bus etiquette a time or two but there's grace and I'll take it.

Today left me thinking about how much control having a car gives us; to come and go as we like. The bus on the other hand leaves you on someone else's time table which is not always predictable or convenient and sometime you just can't do what you want. The bus helps takes me off the throne for a little while.
