There were also some things that she was seeing or doing for the first time in her life, for example first ride in the elevator or another example may be the refrigerator, which she did not have in her house. On the first day in the morning she put on the dress which she would wear if she was at home. It was a sunny day, but after she went out she realized that she is not longer in the tropical zone. Again this thing was something new and wrong for her, because nobody told her anything about this country.
I read a couple of stories about imigration that relates to this novel and each character was thinking about this country as the greastest place in the world. In reality there is no such a thing as greatest place in the world. Every place have it's advantages and disadvantages. I think that Lucy is unhappy person, that is disappointed about her new life and in my opinion if she could, she would choose to go back to her country.
