I apologize I kind of totally forgot about this blog and therefore am ashamed to see how much time has passed since my last entry. Since I work week days and have weekends off I spent the first about month or so I was here busily rushing to all the museum and interesting places on the tourist map. Then I got so buys just living, finding that one cafe I like best, spending time with the friends I've made and my host family going to little places in the area that I stopped going to the museums. I don't mind that I stopped. I haven't seen all the places that when I first I arrived I thought "oh I really should go to ___." Instead of I've seen other places that most visitors don't get to see and I like that. Now I leave in 11 days to return to America and I'm thinking okay of those places I wanted to see and haven't are any of them interesting enough I want to try and see them during my last few days or is it okay to not see them considering how many other places I've seen. By doing so there's really only a few places I want to try and see. It's not overly important though because if a friend wants to do another picnic in the park forget those places I'm going to the park!
I have ten days left and on the eleventh day I go to the airport. I can't believe I'm down to just a few days. On one hand I feel like I just got here and it can't possibly be time to leave. On the other hand I feel like I've been here forever and going back will be like going somewhere foreign and I will have to adjust to the ways of life there. Honestly if I could stay here I would. My host family has been wonderful. Saying good bye is going to be one of the hardest good byes I've ever had to do. The village we live in in nice and small but still an easy bus & tram ride away from a large city. From the city I can take a plane, train, or bus anywhere I could think to go. I have myself come and gone from the city by train, bus, and plane while here. I have multiple offers to return again and depending on what life at home gives me I may, who knows.
