Page 3 of 8: Arrival

Did I mention how hot it was when I came out of the airport? I called my Mom right away (said something to describe the heat in a naughty way to her) sorry couldn't resist!

I've got plans to meet up with my friend Trish who is in town from cold Salt Lake City, Utah who's very much loving the warm temps and sunshine as much as me.

Trish I have not seen since Italy. She so generously said, "Jeannette I can pick you up from the airport." I had planned on the bus, after my call to Mom, I try to ring her, somehow our phones were not connecting so I decide to hop on the bus, I believe the 992. Later I'm to find she was there waiting for me but I didn't see her. Still a big thank you for that Trish. Now on the bus you are going along the harbor, which is beautiful, the palm trees are there waving at you, it's warm, it's blue and it's sunshine.

Somehow me, the bus driver and another patron quite don't understand where I'm going so I get off at the wrong stop, something like 10th or 12th avenue, in my mind, I'm to walk four blocks over to Market Street and there is my hostel. I reach that street taking in all the sites along the way.

Now once on Market street I realize I am on the 1000 block and need to get to the 500 or so block so I continue walking. Even with lugging the suitcase and a backpack I did not care. Once sorted I find Trish's hotel, which is a short two-block walk.
