Back On Line

Whew! This past week has been a whirlwind of activity, both related to our assignment as education specialist and in getting set up in our new home for the next 12 months.  As they say, we have been drinking from the proverbial "fire hydrant"  We are doing well, just trying to catch our breath.

I always try to find the humorous in life (sometimes it only humorous to me).  On our short 36 hour flight over, I was amused to see they served us "Hokey Pokey" ice cream.  It brought back fond memories of teaching the youth in India the Hokey Pokey dance, and then waking up the next day with a sore back.

I was also amused when we got off the plane to Auckland, New Zealand to see painted on our plane the dragon, Smaugg, from the Hobbit movie.  That might explain some of our turbulence getting here.

Within a day, we had a two bedroom town home, a new car, a phone and beautiful surroundings. One of our kids asked, "Are you really on a mission". Not one to complain, while a few things are nice, between driving on the left side of the road and being almost 6000 miles from family, we definitely are on a mission.

raining and this is the rainy season
