Tomorrow is the big day; we'll be flying back to the old world. It's kind of hard to explain without going into detail, but from time to time one has to be among familiar people. My friend Marianne once said: Each time I travel, I know when I reach the point that I need to go home; I simply must be among my own tribe every now and then.
Yes, I love going back to Europe each year! Back to the busy sidewalks, the hustle and bustle of the market scenes where merchants touch fruit and vegatables with their bare hands! Back to the millions of bicycles, the crowded cafe's, the fresh bread and oh so tasty cheese! Back to whole wheat breads and french fries with mayonaise! Back to small town living where people greet each other and look each other in the eye!
I'll be back in California though... nothing beats the weather here!
