Arriving the US for the first time does not give me the impression that I am away from home. The "culture-shock" syndrome was not on my tail. I lived in Orlando and the place seems like the Philippines. Not to the full extent though. What delight my eyes was when I visited Disney World. That was different for me. As we travel the roads of Orlando, no vendors on the streets, less commuters, no jeepneys (of course) and almost nobody on the sidewalk.

This is Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines taken at the National Highway area and this is the road heading to the city proper.
street scene in Orlando
Just got out from Orlando International Airport, where my husband works. I took this picture on our way home. Isolated huh? No traffic this time. As you can see, the street signs are huge and you will never get lost in Florida even without GPS.
