Hello again,

Well, I made it back home safely to Seattle.  Now for the adjustment.  The first morning I woke up it took me several minutes to figure out where I was.  Five mornings in a row now.

I hope you've enjoyed the travelogues.  I'm glad that others can benefit from my experiences.  Some of you have commented that you're envious of my freedom to go on a trip like this.  I do feel fortunate.  For me it's life altering to travel overseas and experience other cultures.  There's also a flip side.  I'm envious of you that can make long-term relationships work.  My resignation in that area is part of the reason I travel.

It's kind of funny what you stumble across when you travel.  I had no idea when I took my first international trip.  Two years ago, I flew to Tanzania to visit my sister Sarah.  Through her work in the Peace Corps, she knew the language, the culture, how to get around, etc...  I got to see more than 99.9% of the tourists there.  When it comes to getting to know the locals and their culture, I learned from a pro.  I owe her a little thanks for opening my eyes beyond the tourist route.

To those of you who travel overseas, please keep me posted.

Chao, Eric
