The adjustment to coming home certainly has been much easier than adjusting to life in China! We're in full swing - playdates, grocery shopping, doctor appointments, etc. The biggest adjustments? Where is everybody?! And those we do see are so tall! The stores and streets seem so empty. Traffic is orderly - and omg! - everyone obeys the traffic laws! And the very best - we can now read everything!
Two things I miss most about living in China:
- walking. I love to walk, but I need a specific destination. In China, one walks everywhere, everyday. Up and down and in and out.
- good, cheap food waiting for us at one of the university dining halls, a dumpling dive or at a choice of restaurants.
Now it's time to end GACE in China, but not an end to blogging. Please join us at our new blog - www.gaceathome.blogspot.com starting soon. It'll be mostly photos (with a small amount of text) updated once or twice a month for family and friends. Please do visit!
