And we're back after a two week stint in the US visiting fam and friends. No problems with flights. No problems at border control. No problems sleeping last night. (14 hours of pure zzzzzz's to battle the lag & the remnants of exhaustion from new years eve). Being home felt so comfortable & just plain easy, while here it still feels like a world of complete surrealism mixed with excitement, frustration, and the unknown. Hopefully 2012 will bring a greater sense of settlement and belonging in this new place we call home. Now to rev up the French life once more & to continue documenting:
Border Control Guy:You are going to Paris?
Me: What? (how can anyone understand these guys when they're surrounded by a glass box?)
Border Control Guy: You are going to Paris?!
Me: Oh, Yes (grin)
Border Control Guy: Why are you going there?
Me: Because I live there (grin)
Border Control Guy:(sigh) That's a shame...(STAMP)
