Hey, do you know me?
I don't think so, but that's ok . I'm not a selfish person so I can share with you who I am and don't be surprise if I only use one adjective to describe myself, L-A-Z-Y.
As a lazy person, you might be thinking that I don't like exercising, right?! YES...I agree with you, but sometimes the life is tough and I can tell you why.
In my second week here in Canada I was talking with some friends about the work-program and what I was supposed to do to get the work permit, otherwise I couldn't work. So, one of my friends asked me if I had got the letter when I arrived at the airport in Toronto and I told her that I didn't. Bad news!!! That day I found out that I needed to go until the Boarder (USA-Canada) to get the damn letter. I had no problems with that until she told me that it was necessary to walk in the middle on the highway for almost half an hour. Jesus!!!! I almost died when she told me. But, it wasn't true. The truth was worse. Do you know why???? I'll tell you.
My friend, Lu, and I took a bus at Burrard Station until White Rock. When we arrived there we asked the bus driver where is the boarder and how we can get there. His answer was short and simple - "I don't know. Just walk here on the highway and there are some bus stops". OK. So we started to walk on the highway under the pouring rain and the freezing weather. We walked, walked and none bus show up. We didn't stop. We walked, walked, ate chocolate cookies, walked, ate more chocolate, walked and after two hours and a half we arrived at the Boarder. Nice!!! We were happy and tired. After ten minutes at the boarder talking with the officer I got my work permission. UHU!!!! But, our hapiness didn't take a long time, because we needed to go back. Do you want to know how????
WALKING... Was a long walk home.
What I learned with this??? Don't be stupid. If you arrive in a new country, just go trough Imigration and don't be happy if the officer say to you - "OK. You can go" and point out to the place where you need to take your luggage.
