In spite of a rough start to the day (I missed the alarm for 615am and woke up when my ride was supposed to pick me up at 705am), I pronounce today’s shopping expedition to the States a success! We all found things we aimed to get, (more or less) within our means AND had a great time together. I also proclaim myself the Queen of Bargain Finds for this trip, not a distinction that I normally take pride in, but I must say, some of the deals I picked up were absolutely mind-blowing. Actually, we all did very well in finding things for reasonable value. Will elaborate on more soon, after I recover from a good night’s rest.
