Lowlight of the day:
I paid 3.50 euro for a Perrier at a café this afternoon. And I wonder why I have no money.
Highlight of the day:
I was walking to my dorm after class to drop off my books before I met up with Martin & Barbara at the JFK metro stop to go downtown. The route I often take cuts between two parking lots via a short pedestrian path. It curves a little and as I started up the path, I heard a sort of metallic noise up ahead. I was in a good mood, and when I looked up I saw an elderly man with a cane slowly walking in my direction. I said hello to him and he responded with the same greeting and we went on our separate ways.
About 10 minutes later, I left my dorm and started walking towards JFK. As I began to walk on the sidewalk through the parking lots, I heard the same metallic noise from the man’s cane that I had heard earlier; I looked up to see him coming towards me again. He smiled and said what basically translates to “we meet again!” He was so sweet, all I could do was smile.
