Car-less = less bags

When living "car-less," one of the beauties of urban life is access to public transportation.  The better the infrastructure, the easier it is for you to get around.  In a city that's well laid-out and fully serviced, there're few places you can't get to without a vehicle.

(Insert big HOWEVER here)

In the States, or at least the Midwest, we've learned that our cars let us buy huge amounts of stuff at one time.  Grocery runs mean fill the cart and pack the trunk so we don't have to head back for the week...  When all you've got is two hands, you buy what you can carry, otherwise it ain't goin' home.  We brought a few market bags with us, sturdy and packable, knowing from experience plastic bags weren't going to cut it.  You fill the bags as you shop and then head for check-out when they're full.  You're done shopping for the day!

Sounds like you all are adjusting well.

Let's be in touch...only 3 1/2 hours away from you all.

Praying for you, the family and church.
