things to get used to
1. barking dogs - on our small block there are at least 17 dogs. they like to bark. a lot.
2. geckos - they run up the walls when you least expect it. at least they eat the ants.
3. ants - millions of microscopic ants. slightly creepy.
4. insane bus rides - totally packed, psycho drivers, singing children, balloon-making clowns.
