We stopped in England for a few days on our way home in July: Stonehenge, Salisbury, and Dover, where we could see France in the distance.
We're back in BC--a very small town called Fraser Lake, population 1,500; exactly 1,000 times smaller than Almaty, Kazakhstan, where we have been living and studying. Dover, England, below--if you look closely, you can see Edna and the kids wandering along the paths on a beautiful day at the beach.
We originally started this blog in order to document our lives overseas and to keep our families updated on our activities and whereabouts. When we left for Almaty, Kazakhstan, 3 years ago, there was very little 'street-level' information regarding outdoor sports, prices, customs, religious etiquette, etc.
E.g., prior to leaving, Wikipedia asserted that the country was 93% Islamic. We can report, with confidence, that Allah is not impressed with mosque attendance, of late. Our modest little blog became a sort of visitor's guide for people moving to the area who were also challenged by the lack of current, accurate, information.
However, Kyla and Cody made seamless transitions into their new schools: Grade 5 and Grade 3; Edna picked up a part-time job at the Health Clinic; Dave continues to teach at the local highschool; and we have a very nice home on quiet acreage 10 minutes from town. Come visit.
