A sure sign of how much we’re being courted, we’ve been given a room in the finest hotel in town. At first I was a little embarassed at being given luxury accomodations for what is essentially a job interview.
After a walk around the block, I changed my mind.
Inside is predictable, normal and the people at least speak a few words of my language. Outside is completely alien. Walking down the street, I am bombarded with so much new information, it makes me dizzy.
These aren’t luxury surroundings. This is a sanctuary.
Tonight, we’re thankful for the invention of the mini-bar and room service. A walk around the block was enough for the first day.
