Normal Life

My blog posts usually involve some travel experience or a cultural nuance of living abroad.  The truth is, most days are just like everyone else's days...  Pretty normal.  I spend five days a week going to work, coming home, cooking dinner, sitting on my couch for a few minutes and going to bed.  On the weekends, we go out with friends on Saturday night and sleep in on Sunday morning.  It's the same no matter where in the world we go.  This is the part of living abroad that isn't really blog worthy - my life is the same as yours, as everyone's.

And have some fun.

But that's one of the things I love about living abroad.  Life becomes normal even when you spend Thanksgiving sight-seeing and you can't speak the same language as the grocery clerk.  It's normal because everywhere in the world people go about their days doing normal things.  We all have to.  It's life.  Life, no matter where you live it, is pretty much... normal.
