The Honeymoon is Over

We're back home!

Whew. After a month traveling around Europe, getting repatriated to the United States has been an adjustment.

I'm still in awe of the fact that all of the street signs here are in English. I keep walking around and muttering to myself, "Wow, it's so convenient!"

I went to the supermarket tonight, and in looking at all of the prices, I kept mentally calculating what they would be in Euros.

And on the subway, I bumped into someone and immediately said, "Scusi!" I also said, "Grazie!" when my doorman gave me a package.

Yes, life in the United States takes some getting used to.

A Stranger in a Strange Land

No photos yet, but the following observations:

1. Italy is hot this time of year, and people just don't seem to need air conditioning.

2. France is also hot this time of year. The beaches are terrific, but everyone (and I mean EVERYONE, young and old) thinks to seem that clothing is optional.

3. Fewer things on this Earth are more intense than going to confession at the Vatican. They don't mess around there. The priest kept me kneeling in the confessional for 45 minutes!

4. Nobody likes to stand in line in most of Europe. Someone even cut me off in the communion line at mass in St. Peter's Basilica. I'm pretty sure God was watching.

More soon...

Lune de Miel

The Husband and I are leaving for our honeymoon!

We're spending a month in France and Italy. So I'll be gone for the next 4 weeks.

See you all in August! I'll try to post photos from the road, if my brand spanking new digital camera allows it (I haven't finished reading the manual yet).

Beaucoup de baisers,



THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
