So its seems that my last posts did go through. For some reason, they did not show up after I wrote them. I would delete the last one, except Uncle Ray left such a great comment that I could not dare delete it.
So today was the day. My first tour! As you can imagine, it was a nerve racking experience, and to top it off, there was a torrential downpour for about an hour of it. Of course things couldn't go according to plan! How silly of me.
The group was very understanding, and if anything else I think I got better tips because of it. After the appropriate deductions, I made about 30 euros for 2 and a half hours of work. Not bad!
Thus concludes my first day of real tour guide life. Its only 2:30 pm, but I am already exhausted from my jittered nerves and bad sleep. I think its time for a nice nap in my crowded and rather smelly hostel bed. What else can I do? Besides giving tours, my days and nights are completely open. In fact, I have been looking to see if I can find a hobby or something to occupy my time. To tell you the truth, I can't handle this inactivity very long. I better find a choir or a cappella group soon (though nothing could ever compare to the Accidentals. Jeez, I miss them already.)
Well, I am going to nap. Until next time!
