One week on...

I've been back from Bali for one week now. It's been hard! Pissy cold weather and lots of bad political news.

In just eight days I got used to people smiling at me, being friendly, up for chatting. Here folks seem too scared to look up at a stranger or return a greeting. I'm not looking to win a beauty pageant or anything, but I don't think I look that scary or menacing.
People are scared. I don't like it.

I've been surprised twice this week by friends casually talking about leaving the US--'for a year or two'. Friends who I never thought would even consider such a thing.

What about you, dear reader? Thinking about a break? If so, leave a comment here (you can be annonymous) and let us know what country/countries might get your vote.

I've been thinking of Bali, no surprise. If it was just a year.
