Normal Life, without College Football


When you've lived somewhere going on 6 years,

What seems... strange
 (chicken wanders into the restaurant), 


Or different
(plate full of rice, daal, vegetables, and goat for $1.50),


Just becomes the new normal
(people paid $3/day to get rocks out of the flowing riverbed).


What you might talk about or show pictures of to your friends back in the USA,


(technician who seems to understand the tangle of wires hangs power lines
while his friends manually pull them tightly.)


Becomes something that just is. 
(cow wanders into scene)


And these two have grown up with all the strangeness just being normal.


All the while only following College Football online.
