    Default Bon Voyage Kiwihopeful

    We had a great meal with KH and his family before they left NZ for the US. I'm sorry to see them go, but am sure KH will keep in touch with a regular series of Letters from America.

    Best of luck guys.

    Hope this is just a temporary 'Goodbye'. As Taffy says, it would be good to hear how you're fitting back into the American way of life after a year in NZ. I wonder how much you've changed in that time.

    Have a comfortable and safe flight back and here's hoping you'll fit back into US life smoothly.

    I didn't realize you were coming back to the gol-durn good ole USofA, KH. I hope all is well, and goes well.

    Default You guys are the best

    We're back ... landed in SF Saturday, onto Chicago Sunday to visit Grandma, and now we're at my brother's house in Missouri. It's been a whirlwind few days.

    I'll let you all know how it's going once I get a little more time!

    Hope you're all recovering well from the long trip home. Here's hoping you'll soon settle back easily into your US lives again . Keep in touch.
