so i'm back home! it was about minus 10 when i got in yesterday, coldest i've had since last winter. the ground was covered in snow so i was really excited about that. a bit jetlagged since i've been on the computer since 5:30 this morning! and looking at all the things that have been sent home this past year and the postcards all over the walls of the house just amaze me. i can't believe that it's over and i can't believe that i've actually gone around the world. it will eventually sink in.
