Earlier this week I had a GREAT start to my day!
I was walking to the bus stop... carrying my air pump for the bicycle that I bought off a returning teacher, which was at school. ...As I was getting to the main road (near the bus stop), the bus that I needed was just driving by. ...D'OH!
I knew I'd have about 10 or 12 minutes to wait for another to come along... but no big deal.
As I was sitting on the bus stop's bench, a little car drove by, slowed down, and reversed.
The window went down... and then I realized that it was Tina! ...The HR person from my school. She's the most amazing woman... nice, genuine, and helped me a TON with my paperwork to get here!
She gave me a ride in to school, which was great... AND we stopped on the way for a cappuccino at a small cafe near school.
Now THAT is how I picture living in Italy to be.
...A wonderful start to the day.
I have had a wonderful beginning to my time here. The school I am at seems great. It will be a lot of work but the people here have been incredibly welcoming and many of them say that they love the library! So far so good... : )
