This was my second full day in the desert, and I am finally starting to get a few things done. Today I completed most of the intake paperwork for my job, visited the office where I will be working and met the boss and many of my co-workers, rented a car (hallelujah!), opened a bank account, and began looking for a car on-line. Not bad for a Monday.
I was so rushed getting things done that I literally forgot to be concerned about driving on the right side of the road. I slipped up about four times, but fortunately Security Forces were off doing other things and nobody seemed to get too excited about the old man driving directly toward them!
Tomorrow I will work at sorting and organizing my office - and get serious about finding a car to buy. I have also made contact with a realtor and a rental agent and will begin looking at available housing.
It would all be so simple in a moderate climate.
