From Durango, we moved to Pueblo and stayed with Zack's mom for about a week before packing up and flying out to Wisconsin. We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with my Omi and my Aunts. Suffice it to say, we had our fill (and then some) of Wisconsin beer and cheese:) We also had a chance to check out Chicago for a couple of days. Navigating the Metra train and then the Chicago bus system made me feel a little bit more confident in my navigation abilities and my ability to stay calm in a big chaotic city. It was great practice! Zack and I joked about how our next challenge will be to navigate the transportation system in Thai...Compared to the prospect of navigating Bangkok, Chicago was a piece of cake!

I'll also have some time to actually contemplate what to pack for Thailand...After reading through the blogs and the advice of so many Peace Corps volunteers who are currently serving in Thailand, I think I'm going to strive to keep it as simple as possible. Hard to do though when trying to plan for over two years abroad! On that note, I'm so grateful at this time, especially, to have so many supportive people in my life who are helping to make this period of crazy transition so smooth and enjoyable. My continued love and thanks goes out to all of you:)
