Things I miss

So I have only been home a week, but as I was watching my pictures flash by on my screen saver this afternoon I realized there were already a number of things I miss. I think what it really boils down to is that I miss a world where the most usual sights seem like they should be normal. It really is a wonderful world where the following do not seem strange:
A big load on a little bike

A donkey cart at the front gate of a major university

A bird carried on the bus

A little lamb following Mary through the department store.

Those are great pictures, cat. I miss those things, too. I really miss da pan ji these days- might have to make a batch for some friends who aren't afraid of spicy food and random chicken parts :-) I hope you're adjusting well to Canada. It must be quite a shock to have to return so suddenly. I'm thinking about you!

Haha, love it!! You know you have acclimated to a new culture when the seemingly unusual has suddenly become normal. :)
Hoping this conflict is cleared up soon and that you are able to return to your 'home'.
