recently the culture shock has been hitting at really odd times–mostly at bed time.
confusion sets in when it is time to brush my teeth. i seem to skip a few beats about where i keep my toothbrush (in the bathroom, in a drawer under the sink). sometimes i am confused enough that i open the door to my walk-in closet in an attempt to find my toothbrush (in kotido it was stored in my little open-reach-in-closet) before realizing that this is ridiculous.
and for the past two weeks, every night, i think about tucking in my mosquito net. last night after turning out my bedside light i even groaned that i hadn’t tucked in the net yet before realizing that there is no net to tuck in, and that i do not require one.
i’m told this is normal…
