... dinner with me (supposedly ALL her other friends were out of town) on
her birthday and insisted on paying for it all herself.
By the Friday I rather fancied a drink.
Went to dinner with Lydie and Mathieu from France at Little Italy which even
did wine. It’s self explanatory that most expats don’t have a sense for normal

I found myself arguing with the bus conductor over ...
... happy about that. I took six classes and was insanely stressed running around like a chicken with my head cut off figuring out things for study abroad. I thought I failed all of my finals... I was too busy crying about not getting my visa and worrying that I wouldn't be able to come to India on time rather than studying... what a relief. That seems like ages ago.
