What is meant by "I couldn't wait to leave" in the following dialogue:
- One day a traveller was walking along a road on a journey from one village to another. He noticed a farmer working in a field of crops beside the road.
- The traveller stopped for a moment, greeted the farmer, and said, ‘I’ve just been to the village in the mountains, and I am now on my way to the village in the valley. Have you been there? Can you tell me what that village is like?’
- ‘How did you find the village in the mountains?’ asked the farmer.
- ‘It was terrible,’ replied the traveller. ‘I couldn’t wait to leave. The people were cold and unwelcoming to me.
Kindly, can somebody rephrase it (i.e. I couldn't wait to leave) in a more clear way?
