A couple of days ago, I thought about the excitement of being back in Seattle. I miss my friends and family, and I kind of want to be back. I am both excited and sad to return back. On one side, I want to continue seeing the great monuments of the world and learn more about history, but on the other side I want to be back in our cozy house with all of my family. We still have quite a while before we reach Seattle, but we are almost to our home country. I don’t have much in the way of stuff that I have carried all the way from home except my clothing. And even for clothing, I don’t have much.

One the things I have missed the most is Magic the Gathering (a card game). We used to play it almost every day, but now we can’t play it because we don’t have the cards. I have also missed the rest of the board games we own which we also didn’t bring. But the thing I miss the most of all is family.
