Today I took a half day to get my car fixed. I’m getting off Lakeshore Drive (LSD) at the LaSalle exit when a dude in a white SUV pulls up next to me and starts waving his hands frantically for me to roll down my window.
So I do.
"Hey man, do you know that your back wheel looks real wobbly?"
"Yeah. Actually I’m on my way to fix it."
"Right on. Be careful."
People are nice.
Today was the first day that anyone gave me any sort of information about what I’ll be doing, as my job, in about a week. We sat in sessions led by people from the local government of Madrid and students who had been in our shoes one year before. We listened to what the program was in theory and, behind closed doors, what it is in practice.
I was supposed to meet with my coordinator tonight, but unfortunately they had a previous engagement. Guess I’ll have to wait to find out when my first day is.
