Our suitcases were in the back of the van, and we were all staring out the window at a city that we hadn’t seen in 5 years. “This looks…different,” I said, and my brother chimed in, agreeing, “Yea…this looks different!” “This doesn’t look like where Grandma lives.” Our car rolled to a stop and our uncle was helping us out the doors before we realized – we weren’t at Grandma’s at all.
