Still the same routine : woke up at 8.30, bath, breakfast.
I emailed Gilles to set an appointment at 11.30 in town, in front of Tanger Outlet.
But before our shopping adventure, I had to go back to Game Stop.
Remember I had reserved 2 limited edition controllers for the Wii U and for this, I had to subscribe to the Game Stop card ? Of course, I had explained to the seller that I was living in France and I didn't want to sign up for something that I could not use. The card costed $16 and he explained me that it would "pay itself" because of a discount I'd have on the Wii Remote.
So I double checked what I had to pay on my second visit and even with another game that I added, there wasn't any discount. As I supposed, I should had bought a lot more things to have one.
It wasn't the same person at the cashier but he was very understanding and refund me the price of card.
The rest of the day has been more shopping with Gilles at Tanger Outlet
(where I found Daft Punk
and Grateful Dead
vinyls, a Tetris card game
and a Lego book
) and at a nearby mall (where I bought Game Boy games
, a Zelda book
and a Pink Floyd vinyl
During the ride, we passed by a highway toll where the price was $0.75... exact change. We both run into sereval of these "Exact Change" signs since when arrived in the USA. When I took the bus in Atlantic City, I had to have the exact change to pay. The highway toll didn't even had another exit in case you did not have exactly 75 cents ! It looks like we should always have a bag full of quarters with us !
Gilles also showed me the "food court". There isn't things like that in France where tables and chairs are shared between several fast food vendors around. A very cool concept where you can eat different things with your friends at the same table.
