I am astonished that nearly every green space and blade of grass in the Greater Toronto Area is trimmed, planted and cared for regularly.
I miss drinking 4 cups of chai a day.
I am thankful to not receive stares.
I find Air Conditioning here too cold!
I am amazed at the abundance and wealth.

I miss spending time with family.
I love walking down the sidewalk unafraid of cow/dog/other dung.

I am currently restocking our refrigerator, unpacking, editing photos and taking a week long intensive course. I have so many photos and stories to share! But first, I’ve got to catch my breath.

Thoughts? I love hearing from you!
