it's been thunderstorming in munich for the past week! three storms today alone! what is going on? is this summer? spent a lot of time inside, sleeping, relaxing, preparing for my trip back to new york, lazy museum visits and eating a lot of chocolate and ice cream with the help of kevin and tasja....
but we didn't let the rain get us too down. spent a lot of time "auf's land" in the bavarian countryside. andi took us sailing and swimming at the ammersee...we powered through pre-alp downpours and treaded the path of the blue rider german expressionists (my favorite!) in kochel, walchensee, murnau...late-night weekend camping festival/raveparty on a farm near weilheim (notwist 's hometown!) thrown by the rote sonne, the gruene sonne!
tonight we met all the germans--michi & mona, frederik & christopher, tasja & kevin + me for ethiopian feast and goodbye ice cream (triple scoops all around!) ill miss you guys!!!
wow, it's been a good week and an even better two-month trip. is it really over?
i leave this morning back to new york to start a new adventure with a new/old friend, nico. ich freue mich!!!
cheers to all of the new friends i have made, the old friends i've seen, the meals i've shared, the loneliness, exhilaration, frustration, love, awe, and every other feeling in between that i have experienced in the past brain-rattling eight weeks of my life. thanks to everyone who made it happen, from couchsurfers to merchants to busdrivers----every minisecond is a memory!
martí in girona told me this upon my departure, which is maybe my new mantra: "i'm sorry that we couldn't help you decide what to do in your life, but at least we can have a good time!"
thanks, martí. i had a great time! now for the future......................
TSCHUESS, ADIOS, BSLEMA, CIAO, ADIEU, HIHI, GOODBYE!!!!!!
