So, we're really back, but have been extraordinarily busy. By our standards, at least!
I've been sad not to post, but I have the beginnings of all these posts bemoaning the direction of South African food, which, given that I was happy, healthy and well-fed in Cape Town, didn't feel particularly fitting. They will come, in time.
We also have a ton of photos of Noah figuring out what to do on the sand.
So this is more of a teaser post to let you know the blog is alive, since I'm not posting any actual photos right now.
Our move on Saturday went smoothly, but we're not quite out of our old place yet. Our landlord has been flexible and I chose not to think about this move AT ALL. There really wasn't time to think about it, so I relied on the awesome Eug, who figured out and just generally manages to navigate such stressful situations without getting stressed. Which made it pretty stress free for me.
At the same time, I learned we still have A LOT (as in, a truckload) of stuff; that our new apartment is SUPER warm (environment?), and that Allston is a really interesting neighborhood. My commute to work is down to 15 minutes, but it takes forever to get home. The kitchen is unpacked and hopefully Noah is going to sleep more than 40 minutes at a time one day (?) without us sneaking a peak at Ferber.
