Wow. I completely appreciate the time all of you have taken to answer my questions above and beyond! Excellent information because you’re answering questions I have that I didn’t even know I had!
Do you get homesick? I know that is probably somewhat naive, but I mean more “normalsick,” have you ever wanted to go home really bad? I guess you cannot, though, so you just walk through it, huh? Or do you ever feel claustraphobic (sp?)? I guess I’m really wondering if you ever feel trapped?
I checked out this book at the library, Terra Incognita, by Sara Wheeler. Is it an accurate portrayal of what life is like there?
By the way, I am in northern California, and it is very hot right now. I could use some of that coolness you’re enjoying. My garden is taller than me with veggies (only in California) already. We have experienced 4 earthquakes in the past month, which we’re finding somewhat interesting.
