Our new car

When I graduated from college, my parents gave me a Saturn. The car was everything I could have dreamed of — leather seats, manual transmission — but as I was moving to Japan, the car was passed on to my younger sister. She now drives it around, all over the country, but I never did get a car. Now, some five years later, I am in England, needing a car, and my parents offered to make up that lost car and give me my belated college graduation present. We couldn't be more thankful. Here it is, a 2003 Nissan Tino SE. It's pretty fabulous and I was able to get affordable insurance too. So thank you, parents!
