So the bus ride was timed for a leisurely coffee until the Tourist Office opened. They directed me to the post office practically across the street from where I had my coffee. In my defense, no big post office sign was visible. Postcard stamps to the US are .90 Euros (over a dollar each) Now to the market with my list! A clerk spoke enough English to answer my question: “Do you take American Express?” and weigh a few pieces of fruit. Into the basket went spaghetti & sauce, applesauce, yoghurt, lemon tea, orange juice, a few other things and of course, a baguette! Checking out, I whip out my ecologically correct bag just as she asks if I have one. Ah – hah! Aren’t I clever – less than a week and I’m almost in the groove. But wait! The market DOES NOT take American Express and I am shamed into spending all my Euros on only the fruit and baguette. Certain that I was a few Euros short, I am thankful the clerk took what I had. Hey – wait a minute! Wasn’t she the one that said they took American Express??
Of course, the bus that stops is not the right one, but I hop on then off at the next stop so I can hop on the correct bus. The driver & another driver buddy were making fun of me (I think).
