Silja has been dealing with the whole change surprisingly well thus far. Stopping over in Iceland on the way meant the time change happened gradually. First two hours, then four. She gets talked to a lot, though most refer to her as 'him'. I think we'll need to work on some ribbons or something into whatever hair there is...
All in all I feel very positive about this new area of ours, which looks so different from anywhere else I've lived. I feel incredibly privileged to get to try this out. At the same time I'm also slightly overwhelmed by the newness of it all, which I know I will have to deal with a lot by myself, as Bjarni soon will be busy with work. I know that is part of the deal and the moving-around package. We'll see whether or not previous experience makes a difference. Coming from Vienna though, Americans are just so incredibly friendly and welcoming and I know that is making it a lot easier.
I lost the lens cap for the camera in Iceland, and haven't used my camera much since, but I will be back soon with more pictures. For now Instagram will have to do.
