You know you haven't quite reintegrated to your current country when you start fretting about a friend's safety when she goes on vacation and you call on the day she's supposed to come back to find out how it was and to say hi because the bar exam is over! What else is there to do? And she's not back within cell range by 7 p.m. "But, it's dark." you think, "How will she make it back tonight?" After a few hours, you suddenly remember that people drive in the dark here. Even long distances. How novel!
