In fact, unlike the “Michigan” version of myself, I hardly even carry my cell phone with me. It’s not like there’s anyone out here that’s calling me, so why bother!
Speaking of phones, in the states I usually talked on the phone while doing the dishes, watching TV or laying on my bed. Now I no longer talk on a phone, but talk “through” a computer and I am either in a cold bar area with a crazy bat flying over my head or sitting in the front seat of our car while parked outside the Harding’s gate. Good times.
In Michigan, I’d often get sunburned in the summer, but it seemed like the sun was hardly even out during the winter. That is not the case here in South Africa! I already had one little burn and am sure that won’t be the last “winter” sunburn I receive.
We used to go to bed around 11:30 every night. We considered anything before 10 to be super, super early. Now we are usually heading to bed between 8:30-9:00 and if we stay up past that it’s like we’re living on the edge.
Technically, my last “difference” is not correct, because I should have said we go to bed between 20:30-21:00. Even telling the time is different here in South Africa.
