Oh myyyyyy. When people warned me about 'repatriating' my thoughts were-eh, no problem. How hard can it be to go back to your own country! Well, now that I'm experiencing it first hand, I can say that repatriating has its challenges. Everything is sooooo big here. There is cement everywhere. There are cars (big cars!) everywhere. There are people everywhere.
Yesterday we went to the grocery store (Safeway). There you can buy pretty much everything you need.....it's a big store! I went over to buy eggs, opened the container and counted how many eggs were in the carton. It seemed like sooooo many eggs!!!
Tonight we went to one of our favorite restaurants we've been talking about going to for months. The food was delicious....as always. We watched the waitresses running around trying to serve people and we just felt rushed during the entire dinner. It is such a contrast to what we experienced in Europe where people sit, take their time and really enjoy a good meal.
