It's been three months since we gathered up our household in Southern California and moved to Lyon. What happened in these three months? A lot. Here are some of the things worth (perhaps) writing home about:
We now have a place to call our own. Well, it's a rental, but it's an apartment, not a hotel room. It's our own space, our HOME. And it's good to be home.
I am now driving. Turns out, driving is not the issue; parking is.
We've made lots of friends, mostly from the international community. Everyone has been kind, helpful, and so graciously good to us. I'm sure we looked lost, bewildered and utterly helpless -- in fact, we probably still do. I only hope to help someday someone who is just as lost, bewildered and utterly helpless.
I now make my coffee with Bialetti Moka Express, and occasionally even put a bit of sugar in it.
Some people have told us that it'd take six months, some said a year. But we're already feeling comfortable in this town, things only get better and life easier.
It' true. Home is where you make it.
