My best friend has arrived for her visit, which means my postings will be sporadic for the next two weeks. In the meantime, it’s going to be fun to see my adopted country through new eyes.
Having come from cool and rainy Oregon, she is already sympathizing with the British tourists who are always wearing shorts and sandals while residents are still in long pants. “It’s HOT,” she said in disbelieving tones as we strolled through town.
Heh. This isn’t hot. This is pleasantly warm. The residents are still in long pants because we don’t break out the shorts until it really warms up.
