The Sharif Residence

We had the luxury of seeing family on our excursion. We planned to see them for a couple days so we wouldn't impose. It turned out to be a full 6 days. I mean, they are family after all. They have to keep us. 

hey fed us 3-5 times a day with either delicious home cooked meals or the best take out you could find. My aunt has always been a foodie. And my uncle is Pakistan and he knows how to make delicious authentic Asian food. Why would we want to leave!!!

 A family that reads together... Has better vocabulary together? Is that a thing?

Also had the pleasure of hanging out with my cousins, Ali and Zara, ages 15 and 13. I hadn't seen Ali since he was 6 so it was nice to catch up and see him as a man! Zara will rule the world some day and is by far the prettiest girl cousin in the family. She looks more like my mother than I do. I digress...

I use to visit my aunt when she lived in Seattle by herself. My brother and I would visit at the end of every summer. It was fun seeing some of the same decorations she had then in their new place now. A little bit of nostalgia and comfort.

Needless to say it was a great way to end the trip. I know family doesn't really ring a bell when you think of a honeymoon but I think it's safe to say a week of comfort and English was pretty nice.

 Everyone should have a series of gold mirrors.
