Yes I've been back almost 3 weeks... but unfortunately came back to a pile of work that makes you wonder if two weeks away from the office is worth all the e-mails and catching up you have to do.
Anyway, in summary: It was a whirlwind trip to Joburg. A blur of lunches and dinners. It was great to see familiar faces and places - thanks to everyone that made it out in the 'cold' weather to see us.
Whilst it's been just under a year, the city was still familiar, and we could still find our way around. Driving on the left side of the road again was interesting - I truly do miss the stick shift. Scary that I almost drove up the wrong side of Jan Smuts avenue in Braamfontein. Coming back here and driving on the other side of the road was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
Coming back was strange, too. Leaving home but going home. Guess that's what it is to be a 'permanent resident.' Now that our house is almost ready (I'll put up some more pics soon...) Toronto is now more and more home.
For those of you whom we were unable to hook up with, you'll just have to come visit us in Toronto ;)
