Two Worlds

Not even a week to go before we head out. Today is Thursday, we’re leaving on Tuesday. I made the remark to Kim yesterday that it’s SO weird that in a week from now we’ll be navigating the streets of downtown Jakarta in a taxi. My how our world will transform. It’s so hard to see myself existing in two locations that are so totally different from each other. One being the snowy landscape of Wisconsin. The trees, the silence, the hot cappuccino and quiet intimacy of having family nearby. The other- the sweltering heat of Indonesia, the crowds, the traffic, the foreign language and culture of it all. Having spent enough time in both places I can more than imagine what they feel like. I have this reaction to rub my eyes as if I’m not seeing right. But no, this is actually happening. These two worlds do exist at the same time. Imagine that!
