The breakfast here consists of freshly baked croissants, pastries, macchiatos, and little packages of Nutella that have soft edges so when you lick them you don't cut your tongue. It's awful. It's not like the breakfast I'm used to at home. This is going to take some getting used to.
Love, Your Buddy,
Last night I felt like a little kid waiting for Santa!! I was finished packing; all 32 lbs of what I thought I couldn't live without for the next two weeks, packed snugly into my backpack. I learned years ago to roll everything up and put them into gallon sized ziplock bags, a tidbit of knowledge from my college hippie days when we were illegally backpacking in the redwoods. Good thing too because the second I stepped out of my house to leave for the airport the sky opened up and dumped a few inches of rain, leaving me soaked to the bone. Please baby Jesus don't let this be any indication as to how my 24 hours of travel will go. I've had two hours of sleep and I can't handle any surprises right now.
