I recently took a job in a new country.
This location is unlike any location I have ever lived.
There are people outside all the time, and no 1 seems to be in a rush, Island time is a real thing here, it seems. I am enjoying my new job and my new life. I have noticed a few things that are much peculiar than life back home, and for 1, there is rarely an air conditioning system somewhere. Not 1 building I have looked at to live in has an air conditioning system. Heating is not an issue, because the weather rarely drops below 80 degrees. At night, an air conditioning system would be nice, but honestly, it is not necessary. The trade winds blowing off of the ocean cool the town down at night. Most people drive scooters or mopeds. There are a few taxies on the island reserved for paying tourists. I only believe that these cars have A/C because I was in 1 on my way to work recently. My scooter was broken down and my bike was stolen. It had been a while since I had been in a car or a cabin with AC, so the refreshing chilly air on my face was nice on the way to work. That night, my neighbor gave to drop myself and others off back at my house. I declined and called a taxi. I wanted to rest in the A/C for as long as I could, and this was just the excuse to do so. Upon arriving back at my house, I began to suppose homesick for AC.
