Two is the number of weeks since we moved to Thailand – and we love it! Two also happens to be the number of times we’ve been downtown since we arrived (sad, I know, but we’ve been really busy). Ironically, two is also the number of times we had been to Thailand before we moved here. I had two interviews to get this job and two years is the minimum duration of my current teaching contract. We have two sets of friends that are planning to come visit us this year. And of course, there are two of us living in this two bedroom condo with two bathrooms and two balconies.
For those of you that are curious, sawng means “two” in Thai, dua is “two” in Bahasa, zwei is “two” in German, and due is “two” in Italian (in case you couldn’t tell, I’m in the “counting” stage of learning Thai. Why is it that whenever you learn a new foriegn language all the other languages you’ve learned in the past seem to be so fresh in your memory?)
What kinds of twos have you been noticing lately?
