see the world

zipping through the german countryside, people-watching in a bustling train station, walking parisian streets again, becoming a hostel person, the in-transit thinking space, holmes and watson, landing in recognizable terrain, actually being moved by the incredibly cheesy "welcome to america" video playing in the ORD customs line, listening for languages and being surprised by english, watching sweet old (and young) couples hold hands during take-off and landing, talkative taxi drivers, on-time arrivals, kmrod's greetings, driving up and down Rt 50's hills through tiny colonial towns in a light spring drizzle, seeing sara pugh and talking into the night even though i've been awake for 24 hours straight, a particularly badass feeling for successfully traveling across continents alone, and getting my perspective all bent out of shape.
