Wednesday nights with the Sanchez family: tutoring, in numbers

2.05: euro the bus costs each way (which the family reimburses)
5: kids I tutor
8: kids in the family, total
18: euro I make per hour
19: roundabouts on the bus ride there
30: minutes I spend with each child
40: approximate number of minutes the bus ride takes, one way
41: speed bumps* we go over in the bus, one way
625: bus number I take to get to their house

*Every crosswalk over in that area is raised, hence they create an extra long speed bump. The bus is constantly breaking right before them, bounces over, and accelerates once again. My body does not enjoy this, especially on the way home at the end of the night.

It takes me around an hour and a half to get there, and the same amount to get back home. This is because I live on the other side of the city (9-10 metro stops) from the bus station. But I read/study on the metro/bus, and the family is so great that it's worth it.
