Day 253 - Lila

Thought of the day: I was out and about in town with Jasmine and Lila today. People, including strangers, were shockingly friendly. The Swiss are by no means unfriendly. They are often kind and helpful. In particular, if they know you well, they tend to treat you like their own family. However, they certainly don't express their kindness in a way as open and cheerful as the Americans do. They expressed it in a much more quiet and reserved manner. And they certainly don't make a fuss over kids, unless they get too unruly for them. It takes some time to become an outsider to observe and appreciate some of things that you have taken for granted. Yes, it's good to be home again.

Lila alternated between over-excitement and drowsiness all day, probably a result of the jet lag. So when our minds are struggling to get used to a "new" place, our bodies are struggling to get used to a "new" time. In a week's time, everything will surely be back to "normal" again.
