How should I construct a sentence that would mean Up to some time in the past I was not aware of something (e.g., Until a few days ago, I did not know that you arrived in the city.)?

Is the sentence correct? Please suggest a few more equivalent sentences with better structure than this.

Consider:

Up until a few days ago, I did not know that you arrived in the city.

Up until a few days ago, I was not aware that you arrived in the city.

Here are some options to consider.

  • I just found out a few days ago that you arrived in the city.

  • Prior to/up until a few days ago, I had no idea that you had arrived in the city.

Another alternative (slightly different connotation):

  • I was caught off guard a few days ago after learning that you arrived in the city.
