I didn't know that every house here had either jail bars or huge walls that are suppose to be impenetrable, oh and we have 13 keys to our house.
I didn't know that when we received our packages that they would look like they had been on the movie "Castaway". Seriously, how much more tape could they have added to it?
I didn't know that our first month would include the five of us being jammed into the back of a cab (thanks Hope for capturing what I truly felt about those cab rides, HA)
I didn't know that when we purchased Maddox's "Santa" gift that 3 days later it would lose every limb except for one leg! The only thing he wanted for Christmas was Spiderman so we finally found one that didn't cost about $50 and what do we get? The most broke-down Spiderman EVER! Poor Maddox and poor Spiderman
I didn't know that when I took my kids to the beach that I would have to dodge the couples making out on the beach and the 30 vendors trying to sell me everything from food to swimsuits. This picture perfectly depicts our beach day- a vendor selling stale sweet bread and the couple next to us that I had to shield my kids from watching
I didn't know that I would come home to my son with a wet paper on his forehead because they say it gets rid of hiccups. I LOVE their ways, so simple
I didn't know that on the same strip of road I would see a HUGE mansion and right next to it homes that.... well I'll let the picture speak for itself
I didn't know that my heart would break every time I saw a child looking through dirt for food and that my son would look at her and say "mommy, that little girl needs a toy."
I didn't know that I would fall in love with this great big city and most of all the people so quickly.
