WHAT I LIKE ABOUT BEING IN THE
US (suburban to be precise) Texas
Not the only one at the supermarket with a full cart – and no old ladies commenting that two loaves of bread is “so much”.
Strangers smile and say “hello” and it’s not because I’m white.
(Most) Strangers also don’t give their opinions on how my children are dressed, or whether they’re big/small, should be potty trained, etc…
Drivers actually stop for small children (and even adults!).
Awesome and free playgrounds! (not to mention affordable public pools)
Family, of course! And good home cookin’ (not to mention cook-ies!) J
WHAT I MISS ABOUT
Nanny! And cleaning lady! And driver!
Good public transport and cheap taxis
Plentiful and cheap produce
The relatively easy life and employment for foreigners…
The unpredictability of life and work…
