I probably shouldn’t be writing to you today given my mind is not really here. I would be lying if I didn’t say I was jealous of you who are home in the cold, but with your friends, family, and loved ones. I was told by more than one person that time which will really decide if I can handle being alone abroad would come in the third week. After the “honeymoon” stage, after the vacation-feel, after the initial excitement. When it really starts to hit the new world I would be living in. The different food, signs, people, atmospheres, bed, lifestyle, and smells. It has not been the easiest of trips and I am even in an english speaking country. I give so much credit to those who travel for extended periods of time to countries in which they do not speak the language. I already feel as if I am in a different world and I can still communicate with everyone around me.
I will not dwell on the negative however, there has been so much amazing that has happened as well! As of last Tuesday, much has happened at both my internship and this weekend.
