Arriving late at night in a foreign country is always exciting but not only that, it is tiring and sometimes annoying if you don’t know how to get to the next place. Buses may not run or taxis can be strange and so on. Arriving at Burlington was almost too easy; there was no usual struggle and confusion. Karen Nelson and her parents, Betsy and Ted, were welcoming us at the airport. They drove us to our apartment which they had set up with groceries and other necessities.
We had a nice meal and got two bikes and futon to go with us! As if this wouldn’t have enough for one week, Betsy and Ted took us to a Labor Day party that the large family celebrates in a lovely house and garden in Stowe. On the way there we stopped to see Betsy’s sister’s alpacas. We had never seen them before, but they reminded us of our cats Låsso and Nippu in their cuteness!
Living the good life in Burlington!
