I knew it would be different living in another country, aside from the obvious.. Language.
Not knowing anyone, getting lost and finding North and South , when you live at the bottom of the World, actually has had me stumped a few times.
Then there is the food.
Even the food that is the same as what we have had in other parts of the world, doesn't quite taste the same. So I finally gave up that idea of "just like home" ..
Now and then, something will happen .. I will taste something, hear or see something and the first thing that pops into my head is that this is "just like home" .
For various reasons, we ended up celebrating the big day yesterday by going to the Hippodromo.
For one thing, it just looks like a place that would be good for a party.
I guess they all heard I am reaching my maturity.
Everyone is always in a good mood at the race track. Especially when the horses win for you.
My husband had the idea and it was perfect for that taste of something we love, that we rarely have and that tastes almost exactly like what we have "back home" ..
Indian food !
I guess this getting older thing is not quite as bad as some people say.
And you know what they say about the alternative.
Our lives are about to go through more big changes, changes that we have some control over but as in most aspects of life ... You never know ~
But we are ready ..
