I will most definitely write a post in the next couple days about our High Holiday experience, but for now I will just say that there are many things we miss about the good old US of A. And I would like to list them for you now:
Our families and friends, of course..and being in the same time zone...
Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Driving our own cars, and the freedom that comes with that.
Understanding people when they talk to you on the street.
Change of weather (Not that we are complaining about the never ending sunshine...but a little variety might be nice).
Not converting shekels to dollars in my head all the time.
Having a real job (Seriously!!).
Non-Jews (Again, variety is the spice of life).
Taco Diablo..and good Mexican food in general. And Chinese.
Walking to the lake in Evanston.
Walking around the lakes in Minneapolis.
There are many more I'm sure. Don't get me wrong, there are no complaints about this adventure were are on....but sometimes its nice to remember the comforts of home!
