A window on other peoples' lives

Couchsurfing: staying in someone else's home and seeing how they live. Weird, truly.

Trying to avoid identifying anyone publicly here, but have just spent a few days with a couple who met less than a year ago and already have a one-month old baby.

They're from different cultures, and neither speaks the other's language very well. In fact they don't speak any common language very well either. One is proud to be a stay-at-home mum in her own country, the other doesn't like the country very much and is struggling to earn a living.

Boys and girls, be careful out there! Don't get caught like that. I'm very glad to be me this week.
