Well, I'm packed. I spent the day at work tying up loose ends, and now I'm ready to go. I have two bags, one of which contains nothing other than things I'll leave with my friends and family in Germany. The other has just enough clothing to last me through ten days in Europe. I can't wait to settle in to a café with my friends this weekend, drink my koffie verkeerd, and relax for a while. It should be lovely.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I hope to see you in December.
