Yesterday – our second “real” day – took me all about town and took Mike to work. We know well that Mike’s work is super exciting, so I’ll ask him to pen a post about that soon. 🙂 It was also my first trip to the mall! It was very interesting! I went with Michele, one of the other two wives along for the trip, and her two kids. We stopped to get ice cream, and people were ordering ice cream and beer. Right there in the middle of the mall. It’d be like going to the Great American Cookie Company kiosk and ordering an “Original” and a Bud. I was a little too shocked to snap a picture, but I’m hoping that you can imagine. Needless to say, I’m still adjusting…
The mall was filled with interesting things, ranging from the sight below to crazy, madhouse, like-trying-to-buy-a-cabbage-patch-doll-circa-1984 stores (school supplies are hot commodities in these parts).
On a more cultural note, they also had a sand sculpture installation going one level that was pretty fun:
I’m off to the market this morning (there is a large Farmer’s Market in town every Wednesday and Saturday). And hopefully learning to ride the buses! (That, my friends, will be an interesting post!)
