If you decide to move overseas be advised that flying home for furlough sucks. Unless you live in Mexico, then I suppose it wouldn't be too awful. Our three flights nearly killed us. They would be fine I suppose if we didn't have small children. Then the free flowing wine and beer would have made up for the pain of the flight. But alas.

Also, American food is way better than I remember. Specifically the beer. My first beer after arriving home was a Fat Tire (I'm from Ft. Collins very near to New Belgium) and I think I commented after every sip about how amazing this was. Yes — I home-brew, no — my beer is not as good as Fat Tire.

Finally, America has gotten stinkin' expensive. Wow. And Wow.

That is all.
