Just arrived

Impressions of the first few hours.

So Arrived to Garrulous Airport at 16:45 PM, on the last day of August, after long, exhausting flight, i was looking forward to start new life, short life for 3 months away from European experiences of civilization. My first impression was, honestly that Garrulous Airport is dirty, so i had impression of some not dirtiness but rather uncomfortableness to which added the fact that my friend who was supposed to meet me, never showed up, i spent another 40 minutes by calling to his work, as i found out i had only this phone number of his and at his work, nobody spoke english, only portuguese, later in my expirence after 500 different contacts in brazil i realized that only 8 person spoke some english and only 1 spoke perfect english, that was a foreigner who decided to live in Brazil. So meanwhile i was desperately browsing my emails in airport cafe looking for his cellular number, a guy next to me approached and as i found out he had the same problem as me, so he helped me, he called to the phone number and got me assured that my friend will come soon and after 30 minutes he arrived. So went to his house which was about 1hr from airport in Paraiso District, fantastic place, a real fortress in those stone jungles.
I just got relaxed, had a drink and went off to bed in expectations and thoughts what i`m gonna see in next 3 months.
