Making lists

I've making lists in my head these days, so here's one I've been thinking about...

Things I don't like about Belgium (in no particular order) ...

1. Spiders - they refuse to live outside where they are supposed to

2. I haven't seen the stars since we moved here - too cloudy

3. Rainy (see cloudy reference above)

4. Muddy (see rainy reference above)

5.  Everything (laundry, shopping, administrative stuff) takes longer 

6.  My stove is very small and heats slowly

7.  Blocked from some US websites

8.  I'm doing much more driving (though there is a lot less traffic) 

There are many things I like too, I get to those in the coming days

  1. 1. No matter how straightforward any task at first appears, you'll eventually discover it involves a six-step process, usually requiring seeing at least one bureaucrat in person who works in an out-of-the-way office and on an unposted, irregular, part-time schedule.
