Culture Shock! Today was a whirlwind of emotions, observations and sensations! We saw friends. We ate foods we don’t eat much, or ever, in Colombia – Chinese, sushi, falafel, yummy brownies.
Coming back, everything looked the same yet different. The streets of Cambridge seemed very familiar, yet it felt surreal. Fourteen months is a long time to be gone. Everything is so clean and organized here! There is not a scrap of trash anywhere. People obey all traffic signals!
It was wonderful to see friends! The girls and I were so excited! (Esteban had to go to work). It was very hard too. We miss our friend Jonnie who died and seeing his widow was heart breaking. Boston doesn’t feel the same without him!
