Fall trip, 2015, So what do expats bring back?
Food, that we have a hard time getting in rural Tuscany.
Cookies for the dog and cookies for me
New things to amuse me
OTC drugs and makeup
Calendars and dish towels. When you live abroad you need a US calendar so that you know when the holidays are, just like you need a local calendar to know when the holidays are. (That’s why there are multiple calendars in my office) And sometimes you just want to have a funny calendar that reminds you of your other culture.
Tee shirts, with things on them that make sense.
And if a stray bottle of wine wanders into a suitcase, who’s gonna kick it out?
