Marta Herrejon: Family in any language

Marta Herrejon and daughters Cindy, 12, and Angie, 9, are settling into the community.

Twice I have lived in other countries for an extended period of time. Once, I worked in a department store in London, England, selling women's hosiery. The language was less a barrier than the money, and I could ask questions when I ran into a problem. I made minimum wage.

I rode the bus to and from work and took the "tube" and double-decker buses for sightseeing jaunts. I was single, and I had a guaranteed return trip ticket back to the States.
