After nearly two weekchucuhdxhcdcbcduuhbhuu8hyaa6ynnnnyuay6n (a brief interruption there from Sophia, the two year old daughter of Derick and Jennifer, my hosts in Chapel Hill, North Carolina); after nearly two weeks in New York, I’m now in the South. Today it’s sunny sunny sunny, but yesterday I arrived and it was chucking it down. Torrential rain. Something about me being in the southern US that brings bad weather it seems. First impressions of Chapel Hill is that it seems to be quite a cute little place. Lots of old-by-American-standards pretty houses surrounded by trees. People jogging with dogs, studious looking people and such. I experienced my first American supermarket last night. So much stuff. Miles and miles of chocolate and sweets and crisps. And a crazy but clever self check-out machine.
