Adventure complete.

Mondays really are crazy, but in all honesty it is one of my favorite days of the week. I love the time I get to spend with Matt on the bus. I have 4 hours to discuss anything I want to with him, and we talk about everything. (He gets sick if he does his homework on the bus. Lucky me!) We talk about what we learned in our class, graduate school, the random person that is sitting across from us, awful names we could name our future kids, etc. It is awesome and so much fun.

Also, I love people watching on the bus too. It interesting the types of people that come on the bus. The guys that were right in front of us two weeks ago were ex-drug dealers. They were talking about the pros and cons of the jail system and what they think would improve it. We didn't necessarily agree with them, but Matt and I found their conversation very enlightening. There are always cool people on the bus, that I would never interact with except for the fact that we are riding the same bus.

The bus drivers are just as cool too. Jerry is one of my favorites. He has been driving the Provo to Sandy bus for the last two years. He is an avid bike rider and is always pointing out random trails that I should check out one day. There is another bus driver Miguel who I really like. He loves learning different languages, (the last count I heard was eight.) He practices with passengers and goes to night school at UVU to get his degree. How cool is that? 

I love that these people are on the adventure with Matt and me. They are our fellow travelers, just going to different places. It's a nice change to be with some normal people before being canned up in Provo the rest of the week. :)
