How are you finding life over here? What do you miss about being in the US? I miss Mexican food the most! (Oh, and our friends of course).

Dual citizenship? Thats great. Do you plan on using it a lot?
It's a bit of an adjustment but i'm finding things ok so far. I need to brush up on the slang here though, I walk around not knowing what anyones talking about lol.
We miss our family and friends a lot and some of the stores they don't seem to have over here (at least that I haven't been able to find). We are also missing the Mexican and Cajun food. DH is missing sports like right now baseball and it will only get worse when American football season comes up lol.
weezypops wrote:Ha, yes we found the same when we went to the US - I remember the first time I went to a supermarket it just all seemed completely wrong! What shops in particular are you looking for? I think shops-wise I most miss Old Navy and Chipotle.
So where in Chicago did you live? We were in Lakeview. We really liked it actually, it was a great area. In fact I thought Chicago was a fantastic city, we just wanted to be back closer to family and friends so we could properly settle down after having Felix. As for his dual nationality, we used it once already when we went to Canada for a couple of days! I can't see him using it much, to be honest but it's still cool to have. I'm sure we'll take him to see where he was born one day so he can use it then. Was Caden born here or there?
I've actually been trying to replicate Chipotle recipes. I'm getting there with the guacamole but can't quite do the salsa, even though I'm sure it should be really simple.
How funny that you were in the same area! We may have even bumped into each other. So was Caden born at St. Joseph's? Ooh, speaking of Lincoln Park, there's something else I miss - Cafe Ba-ba-reeba!
