Here are a few things that have appeared everywhere we've lived. While the continuity is reassuring, there are some things I would have been happy to leave in the northern hemisphere.
- The Late Show with David Letterman
- Fisher Price toy phones. This was one item I was glad to find again because Petra loves her phone. We're on our second one already. The first one was no match for baby drool.
- French Jam
- Corona Beer with a slice of lime. Also a good thing.
- Nickelback. You can run but you can't hide from the behemoth that is Nickelback. They're all over the radio in Costa Rica, Canada, and New Zealand (and everywhere else as well no doubt – Travis heard a girl asking for their new CD in a mall in Pretoria). Their latest song is rather icky. It's the one with the chorus that features the line – "Cause you look so much cuter with something in your mouth…" What is that about?
