I Love ItMy third year in ths beautiful country.
Tomorrow, we will be moving into our new home. I am excited.
Yesterday, my English friend, Maria, took me out on an adventure. It was like the blind leading the blind. We could have taken the car but we decided to live dangerously minus our husbands.
We took the train to Freemantle and then a bus to Claremont Mall. We introduced ourselves to the local grocer, laundry man etc. We were pleased. Then we decided to take a bus to look at my new home in Mount Claremont.
We checked the bus timetable and our map. We decided to take number 27 bus instead of number 28 because of the waiting time difference.
It was a hot day.
Even though we enjoyed the sights on the bus 27, it wasn't the route we wanted so we asked the bus driver to drop us at bus No:28 stop, nearer to my new home according to the map. He did and we again checked the schedule on the pillar of the bus stop.
Too far for us to walk to the address and the other option, a 30 minute wait in the hot sun for bus number 28.
My friend and I looked at the surrounding area for directions. It was quiet and there were no one in sight. All the houses were far apart. A lot of cars on the road though . We talked and planned our next adventure while waiting for our bus.
We were tired and thirsty.
Then my friend sneezed. I dug into my handbag for some wet wipes. She sneezed again. But when we looked up, a bus went past our bus stop without stopping.
We screamed! Wait! Wait!
We waved our hands and screamed again. It didnt stop,
We looked at each other and we laughed. We could not believe it. It was the number 28 bus.
He saw us at the bus stop, didn't stop and left us. What was he thinking?
G'day mate, we weren't there at the bus stop to bask in the hot sun.
