well, I WAS sleeping pretty well and then somehow at 2:57am, I was kind of awake. Now I’m sitting here, putting Central America photos onto a cd so I can take them into town this morning to get some printed up, thinking about watching a couple seasons of The Office or maybe even a Westwing. What do you think?

I have to work from 9-3:30pm, not a bad schedule but there is stuff I would love to do in the city before work, namely dropping off my 23 rolls of film, buying some deodorant, getting some money, ya know, normal stuff.

I have to work the same schedule tomorrow, Wednesday just 9:30-10:30am and Thursday 7-8:30pm. It’s a good warmup schedule for just coming back. But I’m happy to be earning money again, I have to, if I want to keep travelling like I have.

Which reminds me. We bought our return ticket from Morocco to Basel. We paid a bit more for it, about 100euro/person for the one-way flight but it was pretty much the day we wanted to return, late on a Saturday night for a total of 13 days there. Franziska was right in the respect that 2 weeks would probably be enough there, especially after our intense ordeal that was the adventure of Central America. 13 days will probably be plenty to get a taste of it.

I threw out the suggestion of going to Norway for New Year’s Eve. Franziska had suggested Denmark and I would be totally okay with that but if we don’t do that, Norway is a possibility. Then again, we’ll see. I’ll have just come back from 2+ weeks in California and might not have the umph for more flights/”major travel” or simply have too much stuff with me to do it. 🙂

Is it too early to think about Easter and Pfingsten next year??? 🙂

You know, that kind of time usually means I had a pretty good night but in this case it’s because I’m jetlagged.

All things considered, the trip from freiburg to california went pretty smooth. Of course the first flight left two hours late but with a bit of stress and some luck, I was able to make my connection in Chicago and then 4 hours after that I was waiting for my bags, getting some Mexican food and watching the Dodgers win a 3-2 ballgame, then went to bed around 11:30pm but found myself up at 2:30am and again now at 4am.

As usual, I have good problems…
