Well, we’re baaaccckkk!!
You don’t even know how long our Monday was! We left Sydney at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, and then arrived in Portland, Oregon at 3:45 p.m on Monday! It was the Monday that never ended, it just went on and on my friends…. But, it was great to see family again!! My bro picked us up and later, we hit up, yep, you guessed it – MEXICAN FOOD! Ahhh, arroz y frijoles negro, te amo 🙂
Eventually, I went to bed at 11 p.m. or so, and I slept until 2 p.m. So glorious.
Anywho, leaving Australia is sad. So sad. We already miss it…especially, the weather. (Right now, we’re Portland and the mid-day temp was a cool, slightly rainy 40F. Quite different from the blue sunny skies we had just the other day.) On the other hand, we ate lunch today (my first sushi train experience) and for the two of us, our total bill was a mere $15 USD!
We spent the rest of our Tuesday as American as it comes – in a shopping plaza. We stayed within a 0.5 mile radius and managed to buy new clothes, eat sushi and pick up a new mobile phone. Ahh, America, the United States of Convenience! Fo’ sho.

Glad to be baacckk!!!
