I can't believe it's been almost a year since I went to Japan. It was such an exciting year, I've learned a lot, met nice people I will stay in touch with, traveled to beautiful places. I worked hard for this and it was worth it. Next semester I will have ragular classes again - honestly looking forward to it. I can do without extra excitement for a couple of years now. :) Feels like things are going back to normal, and it's a good feeling!
They're going to cut off my internet connection shortly. Next time I write it'll be from Germany. :)
Signing off with pictures of a lithops dorotheae C300: it is waiting to be sent home.
