Ciao from the other side of the world! Here I am taking a selfie in (literally) my backyard, look at the pretty pine trees and the snow! I just arrived last night around dinner so today is my first full day back at home on Canadian soil. Life right now is all about the triple-F: friends, family, and FOOD. All I've been doing is planning which friend to see next and what I'm gonna eat next. Tonight, it's going to be Vietnamese pho. Cannot wait. I was jet-lagged this morning because I woke up at 5am and couldn't get back to sleep (plus I was counting the hours until I could start banging pans in the kitchen to make BACON AND EGGS). It's slightly bizarre to be surrounded by English; to hear the radio, TV, daily conversations in my native language is a hoot. I've only done a few strange things so far: like not using my blinker, forgetting to turn right on a red, and pressing down on the stove knobs to 'ignite' the non-existent gas burner...ours is electric.
