Departure

3:28 PM

Today we leave Thailand for the first time since we moved here 6 months ago, to visit family and friends in the US and Canada. On the taxi ride to the airport, I was watching our new home city go by and saw a golf cart adapted into a police vehicle round the corner with lights swinging. We both thought it was pretty funny, the juxtaposition of power and control with the speed and size of a golf cart and it led to us joking together about all the driving scenarios we would have to avoid repeating in North America.


- Drive in the right lane, not the left!
- No driving between cars or on the yellow line to pass or skip ahead of traffic
- It is not customary to bribe officers – DO NOT ATTEMPT AT HOME
- and so on…

So much of our daily lives has changed in such a short time. Many things have stayed the same too, but besides the new baby bump, it’s unclear to me what, if a lot or a little, has changed in us. I think that returning to family, friends, and familiar places – HOME – will be the biggest indicator of how this relatively short period of rapid change has impacted us.


Onward!
