This morning I got up, had breakfast and went to the tube station as
usual, but it was closed, so I decided to take a taxi. I waited and waited
and there weren't any around, so I decided to walk. Unfortunately, I got
lost. I tried to ask the way but all the people I met were foreigners so
nobody understood me. It was terrible. Anyway, I walked round and
round until suddenly I saw a sign for the Haymarket. I knew the school
was not far from there so I followed the sign, I got there but I was just
over an hour late!
