Then I walked back to my new apartment to unpack my belongings — clothes, books, a small record player and about 25 long-playing albums.
I took a short nap, then walked back to the Square for a self-led tour before having dinner at the Combo Restaurant.
I got back to my place around 7:30 and turned on the small black and white TV.
By 9:30, I was in my “new” bed.
As I lay there, I thought, "It has been a life-changing day."
It would turn out to be one for which I am grateful.
