People ask me a lot, what I miss about the United States. I of course miss my family and friends, but the subtracting that I do not miss too much. Most of the things are luxury (and by luxury I mean all of the food that made me fat) items, that I have adjusted to not having.
I miss philly cheaseteaks (the kind from a street vendor), breakfast sandwiches, good martinis, Olga’s pizzeria and luncheonette, and just walking or riding my bike around. I also miss lots of stuff in NYC, like eating in Chinatown, going to fun artsy ENGLISH movie theaters, and cooking with my own pots and pans. Oh and Vietnamese food!
Oh and I of course miss my beautiful cat Jezabel. However, other than that I do not miss too much. I get annoyed by the pollution of Quito, and just the inefficiency of life at times, but that is not really that bad once you are used to it.
