This was not how I planned it – my first blog. Just after the hour when I was given the ‘blogging orientation’, I had a lot on my mind. I had a list of things to write, to share and be a window to the world that I see every day here. It’s been a month here and I have SO much to say. What a whirlwind of activities that I saw myself in – coming in, settling down, moving in to a new apartment, getting familiar with the place, getting lost (women CAN read maps and I can, too ... I just didn’t know the directions). I wanted them in a chronological order.
