I left this  ………… extreme weather.  From minus 40 in the winters and plus 40 in the summers.

We said goodbye and moved to London.  The most visited city in the world.

I love it here,  but I miss Kazakhstan!  Gee, never thought I’d ever say that but I do.  Not really too sure what exactly it is but I do.  Maybe it’s the people, the community or just the simple way of life that they lived.  Of course there where people I met who said life was difficult, but simple.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love London.  the city, the country.  The vibrant life, the many things to do and see and of course the diversity.  It’s awesome.  But at times overwhelming.

I guess when you go through a city as a tourist it’s different.  You have a short amount of time and so you pack in the “things to do”.  When you have to live here – life has to take a different pace.

You have to live, make that life.  All those mundane things that need to be done – have to be done.  So it’s different.

None the less – it’s exciting.

This is the life I have. 

I am an Expat……………..and you learn (and choose) to just get on with it.
