Ice and Medicine at the end of the earth

14. What do you miss most about being away from home?


I waited to answer this question until I passed the one month mark since my arrival.  I miss my husband, T.J., the most.  I am able to talk to him over satellite phone multiple times per week, which helps!  I also miss my house, my deck, friends and fall Seattle sunsets. 

I am surprised how much I miss certain foods.  I really want a brick oven pizza, good coffee, cuban sandwich and indian food.  I cannot find any of that down here, and I doubt it would ship very well.

I know I will be really homesick when Jim and Kelly have their baby.  It will be hard to be so far away for the big Birthday Party.  I am hoping to be able to connect with video chat to see the new addition to their family.

I would miss a lot more things without the computer, phone and video technology that we have.
