I'm impressed that you figured it out at all! I'd be clueless if everything weren't written out in English. ;)

It's nice you have the car to travel. What will you do with it when you return to the US? Do you put it in storage?
I'm with Aubrey...I wouldn't feel at home there but I'm happy you guys are at least comfortable with your "temporary life' there.
I think you should borrow Aubrey's blog title, Laughing all the way, for awhile. We're under a foot of snow. Although it is sunny today and very pretty.
