My new shoes! Are they not beautiful? And the coordination happening there...getting ready for fashion class.
An update on the crazy American driving situation. Trying to cross the road is terrifying. Apparently it's illegal to cross the road at a place that isn't a designated crossing, which I keep forgetting. Illegal road crossing is referred to as 'J walking'. Fun times. There's also this thing where the cars can turn even on a red light, which makes crossing even worse. And there aren't always lanes marked in the road. Terror.
On the American jabber; they'd never heard 'pavement' before, and the other day when the sign proclaimed free sweet potato chips, I was left looking somewhat askance at my bag of crisps. They pronounce pecan as 'pehcaan', which very nearly required Google translate services.
