moved twice (we are currently living in a cute little room in a home we found on AirBnb)
I actually don’t know how he fits in this car…
In this week we have learned:
that the inspiration for the weird cell towers disguised as trees actually came from real trees (see photo below)
how well we know the restaurants around our home in Albuquerque (we put together a top ten list for anyone who stays in our home while we are away; many of the restaurant descriptions mentioned waiters by name)
that J.J. can fit in a small airplane bathroom for hours at a time (he got food poisoning on the way over here)
that God can answer our prayers beyond our wildest expectations (we put in an offer on a two bedroom apartment, much lower than the asking price AND we asked the owner if they would like to go in 50/50 on a washer & fridge. They not only accepted our offer but told us that they have a washer, dryer, microwave and vacuum that we can use for the year we are here!!)
that veg=vegetable, robot=traffic signal, fanny does not = bottom, and aircon = airconditioner
that internet is slow, cell service is complicated, and central heating/clothes dryers are not standard features in a home
that housing here is expensive (more than ABQ) but food is pretty inexpensive
that the people of South Africa are very welcoming, kind, and joyous
cell tower or tree? You decide
And most of all, we have learned how much we can miss our friends & family!

Love the update!
“…that internet is slow, cell service is complicated.”
J.J. is probably already designing a workaround. All of So. Africa will thank him.
Dude!! So awesome!! 🙂
I finally happened to have a couple moments to myself and decided to browse fb and while my “super fast” browser was loading, I began to detour to your site only for fb to load and see your recent post! YAY! I totally miss you guys and think about you and your adventures ALL THE TIME! Thanks for keeping us updated. Miss and love you both!
