Writing

Yesterday I went to shop to buy some clothes for my husband, because yesterday was our anniversary. I left at 2pm from home, when I walked towards the shop, I found an exhibition center where they had a photo exhibition. I went in and see all photos, it had 5 photographers, each one photographer had some photographs in a room. One photographer had some photographs about Cuba, another had some had lanscapes, another portraits and another I don´t remember. I spend lot of time there, and then I continue my way to the shop, and in my way I found a park whit a big house, I think that house is a Hotel, but had a very big garden, and so beautiful. I took some photos and I forgot the time, what time it was? When I want continue for and to buy the clothes for my husband I checked my phone, it was too late! And I said, Now I need to go to the English School because I have a class at 4pm but now I don’t have time to buy clothes. So I came here, but when I finish the class I have to go to buy the clothes, but I do not have much time again, because at 6 in the evening my driver will pick me up at home, since my husband booked in a restaurant, we will have a dinner for our anniversary. When I finished class at 5 pm I ran to the road, took a taxi and I said to the driver: I have to go here, then when I was near to the shop the driver told me: I can´t turn left only ahead or turn right, I said: Oh my god why? Ok, let me down here, walking is too far.
