So at about 9:15am, I am home, by myself, and stepped outside to check how warm it is and the wind blew the front door shut behind me. There is no doorknob, you have to have a key to open it. If this happened in the states, I would just find an open window and climb in; not possible here. All the windows have bars on them. So I thought that I would just have to wait several hours until someone came home or possibly walk to school for my class at 1:00 (I didn't have any money in my pockets for the bus). Then I realized that my family had put the lock on the gate when they left this morning and, therefore, I couldn't get out. So there I was, stuck between the gate and the house with no way in and no way out.
I was standing there thinking that I was going to be stuck there for a good 4 hours until someone came home. I started to get a little panicky because I had a lot of homework to do and I would miss class. I started looking around their garage area to try and find any tool that I might use to try to unlock the door. As I was moving some stuff around, a key fell to the ground. Lo and behold it opened the front door!
Now I am safely back inside, my heartbeat has returned to its normal pace, and I thought I would share my mini-adventure with everyone.
