My shoe broke.
But that was the least of my troubles.
Another pair of shoes that has broken in the last week. What's going on?
I had an appointment and needed to print documents to give out, but the resort where I am staying has no printing facilities. So I walked out to go into the town and on my way, the shoe just fell apart. The whole sole came off.
I limped back to my room and put on my flipflops and headed out again.
I got all the way to the shop with a printer and the guy there told me: "I'm sorry. The printer is broken today."
This is not going to happen, I told myself, there shall be no printed documents.
I readjusted my expectations and went to my appointments with an interesting story to tell.
