We have spent the entire trip driving everyone crazy with our desire to visit a firehouse and get Tyler a t-shirt! Our guide has repeatedly said this will be difficult...it's not like in your country...but, we never quit...and today, our last day, we asked the Concierge, like so many times before, "Where is the closest firehouse." And he said, in perfect English, (wahoo,) it was only a mile away...and gave us a city map and marked the path! Our new friends, Cindy and Roy from Kansas City went with us and WOW what the 4 of us experienced! We were greeted by hugs, handshakes, pure love, really! And not a single word was spoken that any of us understood! We had to have tea! They had tea with us! They understood we wanted a t-shirt, they went back inside to get us one... They understood we wanted their address and we will send them back presents...they were SO delighted that we came to see them...it was truly incredible! WOW!
