So, to say we have “landed” in a new land is an extreme understatement. Yes, I was expecting it to be different. AND . . .
Before we traveled to Southeast Asia (principally Vietnam) in October 2019 I used to say I could (and probably would) live anywhere in the world. I learned that just isn’t the case for me. It was “too” different. AND it really emphasized a need in me, at this stage in my life, to really push myself out of my comfort. So, for me, that was a big part of choosing Brooklyn.
And boy does it appear that we hit the target. I’ve never lived in this urban a setting. I’ve never lived in this level of diversity. I’ve never lived where a vehicle wasn’t my chief mode of transportation. I’ve never “lived” outside of California. From 6 to 19 I lived in a town of 200, yes 200.
This is going to be everything I had hoped for, AND MORE!!
So, here we go!!
