Cultural Whiplash!

As you recall, last Saturday we braved the Fingers of Besh Bermag in Azerbaijan.  This Saturday, we braved the competitive maelstrom of the Piney Green Soccer League in Jacksonville, North Carolina, visiting our daughter Brynn and husband Chad and kids. 
After four continents and twelve time zones in the space of three days, we've got Cultural Whiplash!
Arriving back in the US, there were these great big stores, starting with "W" or something.  They had all sorts of stuff for sale!
It was weird!  The streets were sadly lacking in potholes and taxis. 
A car stopped!  Stopped, I tell you, for pedestrians!
We went to a bank, and saw no automatic weapons!
We're having a great time visiting, but I'm telling you, it's taking some getting used to.
We hope that you're comfortably settled in wherever you are.

If you haven't had enough culture shock by the time you get to Ashland, we''ll take you down to the park! Even more shocking on a warm day!

I can report being comfortably settled. Have fun adjusting!
