As soon as I arrived, I had a sudden, violent attack of allergies: sneezing, sore eyes, runny nose. I never had allergies when I lived here, so it was a surprise, especially considering that I was here a year ago. Now it seems to have passed, like a violent storm. However, today I managed to fall and bruise both my knees badly and wrench my lower back. This may be payback for all the bad thoughts about the old and weak people on the bus, since now I'm limping around like the worst of them. At least I take taxis.
