However, I haven't just been sitting here mourning all day. I've also been out with some of my new friends. Yes, it's true, I've finally made some of my very own buddies here in Wheelville. Owing to my "high visibility", one of them just walked over to me on the street and started talking! I've been so excited to have friends that it is pretty visible on my face, but luckily that hasn't scared anyone away. My few days of friendship have already revealed that Wheelville is actually far more diverse than I'd originally thought. The Australians down the road, the Argentines around the corner, the Chinese up the block, everything is starting to unfold and it's been fun. Nay a mention of the "e-word", only good times and good tails of our lives
grappling with the language, adapting to the country, meeting new people, and figuring out which grocery store is best.
Oh and by the way, this is the website for some of my new pals. I'm sure they'll appear here in future adventures very soon!
