where do I fit in?
hey Janice, i'm dreading the thought of returning to Australia for many of the same reasons as you. There is still a restlessness inside of me that I may find difficult to cope with and i'm not sure how i will deal with my fellow countrymen, some of whom seem to think that some type of brown stain on their roses is the most important thing to worry about in this world (from the gardening section of 'The Australian' newspaper recently).
things that I can 'get away' with here because i am so obviously a 'strange foreigner' just won't cut the ice back where i am just another faceless person in the crowd.
hmmm.... keep us all posted on how its going. Maybe we could form an online returnees anonymous!!

Re: where do I fit in?
yeah, my social faux pas aren't nearly as amusing to the locals here... good luck transitioning back to oz! you may find yourselves feeling more like expats there for a while than you do now...
