You know you’ve arrived when…

The 6-month mark of living in a new place is important in a lot of ways.  You know which grocery market you like best.  You realize how many street signs don’t have names (true in New Jersey, true in Kota Kinabalu).  You have a library card.  You’ve started sticking stuff up on the walls of your apartment, even if it’s not technically allowed.  You don’t need to get a thousand things every time you go out.  And…

in my case…

You dream about the Dukes of Hazzard driving on the opposite side of the road from which it was filmed.  Vividly.  My theory is, if you’re really there in your dreams, you’ve finally arrived.  Welcome to your new home!

Driving on the left side? the "right" side? the other side?

Driving on the left side? the “right” side?
the other side?

As I typed, we started watching Cash Cab Asia.  You never know when you will find such great balances of new and familiar.  It’s a great part of travel and of living in a new land!
