Where I stayed
Being a suburban American type, I find freshwater lakes a little creepy but think nothing of jumping into a chlorinated cement square - go figure. Nicole, Veli and I continued our 'tradition' of game playing long into the night.
After being together for 10 days and not seeming to be fed up with each other yet, Nicole and Veli delivered me to a local bus that returned me to Helsinki. A few things had to be decided while with them. One, I decided to mail my laptop back home as there was something wrong with the connection of the cord and I couldn't seem to fix it cheaply. It is just too heavy to carry if it doesn't work. The second was that I decided to come home about 5 weeks earlier than previously planned. 5 months is seeming kind of long. I can save a bit of money and also get started in earning again by returning in early September. I am very sorry to miss seeing Dayla and Michaelis in Greece and the community they live in. That just might need to be another trip. I am also feeling my age and miss my son. So, changing my flight was not difficult and I return to Dulles on September 4. I think Alex, will manage to drive to get me at the airport (probably the furthest he will have driven from home and the most lanes to navigate).
Thanks for listening and stay tuned.
