I’m a legal alien

This is a journal about living in a foreign country on a long-term basis or forever. I immigrated to Israel three years ago, and although I am generally well-adjusted, not a day goes by without me noticing somehow that I wasn’t born here. There are just so many little things that don’t seem natural or obvious to me.I’m sure there are others on Bookmooch who are living in a country that is different from the one they grew up in – be it temporarily or for good. I would like to hear about your every-day experiences living in a foreign place.
I created this journal out of one of the many brochures about different institutions that I received when I came to this country; this particular one is about the services of a health insurance company. You can use the pictures in it for your entry (they’re kind of cute), but you can also just cover up entire pages. Use as many pages as you want, just please don’t alter anyone else’s entry.
I suggest you relist the journal on your inventory immediately after marking it received (since you’ll already be on Bookmooch anyway :)) – this will make it available as soon as possible for other moochers, and remind you to make an entry. Don’t worry about time pressure – you can always tell a moocher that it will take you a little longer to send out their book.
When the brochure is full, please contact me (Hannah; BMID: hanhel), and I will mooch it back from you. If you are having trouble getting the book back out to someone, feel free to contact me as well, I will try to find a solution.

This journal has just arrived 7 months after being marked sent.
