I am all snuggled into a huge blow up mattress bed -thanks to the Wises -which is a huge upgrade from the camping pad I had been using before. Today was a great and busy day. I navigated the city to find a few apartment options - one of which I think ill apply for - and worked about 7 hours at the fruit stand. In addition to the two owners, I work with two fantastic guys: Ryan and Emmanuel. Ryan just graduated from college and has been a transplant from California for six years. He is an outgoing six foot something redhead. Emmanuel grew up here and is in his senior year of college. He's a quieter guy, but that seems to round out our little team quite well. It was rainy off and on today, so of course the joke was that I brought cold weather down with me. The business, in my eyes, is doing really well. People down here seemed starved for quality fruit. I'll be working again tomorrow afternoon/evening, and looking forward to a slow morning doing more online research for apartments. I really like Tucson so far and am very impressed that I've managed to get myself to and from the drug stand since its an hour away from the Wises house. Well, I'm still tapping this out on my phone, so ill call it quits tonight and crack open my book before bed. Thanks so much for checking up on me! I miss you all dearly.
