My husband of 13 years and I are living in a tiny cottage on a strawberry farm in South Africa. We don't have a phone, TV, AC, or microwave, and until March we didn't even have a stove, but we are loving life. My husband is getting his PhD in ancient languages and I am writing, writing, writing. We have children on the way. Two little citizens of the world are coming to us from strange and unexpected places (see the following article). Raising them in a foreign culture (for a time) with hardly two hands to rub together will be an exciting challenge. It will also be the experience of a life-time for all of us (including our adopted dogs, should they prove to have long-term memories).
