While part of me feels like I've stepped into a completely different world (and really I have) I can't wait to spend time with family, friends, sponsoring churches, doing some shopping, and eating Mexican food.
Here are a few things that always stand out to me:
*Driving on the right side of the road. (It still scares me sometimes)
*The huge drop in temperature. (After a Mozambique summer, it is cold here!)
*Pumping your own gas.
*Swiping your credit card instead of giving it to the clerk.
*The vast selection of everything from hair spray to yogurt to cereal.
*Gas prices. (South Africa is about $6 a gallon right now)
*Central heat/air and closed windows
*The fact that I can fix my glasses, computer, eat lunch, and buy new shoes by simply driving down the road.
On another note, if you have an ebook reader and haven't read Adam's Bride, one of my earlier romance novels, it's now on sale at Amazon during the month of March for only $1.99!
