The Grocery Store Gamble

From immigrants to you! Picture this: you’re in a new country, armed with a phrasebook and a sense of adventure. You think you’ve mastered the language basics, so you confidently stroll into a grocery store. You ask for what you believe is “butter,” but end up with a kilo of… anchovies? A lesson in humility and the importance of Google Translate.

Public transport is a rite of passage for any expat. One brave soul boarded what they thought was a bus to the city center. An hour later, they found themselves in a remote village, surrounded by curious locals and farm animals. The journey back was a lesson in public transport maps and the kindness of strangers.
