The principal of the school where I'm teaching told me he would take me to the "best pastry shop in Barlad." He picked me up at 6 PM, had his son and daughter along, both of whom have been in my classes. We drove to the pastry shop and as I climbed the stairs to the 2nd floor of its location, I didn't realize a shelf began on the right side to hold plants. Bang into with my head, so I taught the word, "Ouch!" He was right indeed about the pastry.
After enjoying both pastry and ice cream, we went to the nearby city park. We wandered in the area that is designed for small children. It was fun to see the very little children in this area. It is a fun space.
They returned me to the hotel at 8:30 just when the skies opened for rain again. It was a lovely evening.
I'm saying all this rain is my fault. I was one hour out of Amsterdam when I remembered that I had left my umbrella at home. I'm certain that if I had remembered it the sun would have shone every day while I was here!
