For some in Expatlandia, today sort of felt like sitting on the sidewalk watching a house burn to the ground. All the the whole while thinking, “But that doesn’t look like my house. How could that be my house? Surely we have a fire extinguisher somewhere? Is that REALLY my house?” For others, it felt like we were on the sidewalk with our neighbours, while their house burnt to the ground. We wish we could say “Well, luckily no one got hurt” – but we’re not quite sure that that’s the case. Sigh. Where are the fire-fighters when you need them?
