Another long respite. Oops. Let's just say I've been on vacation. Fully vacated. You've been patient, and for that you deserve pictures.

The Finnish class I took in June was beneficial, and I met several new friends.
I've gotten through an eye exam, a haircut (complete with chitchat) and several interesting discussions entirely in Finnish. I'm officially conversational.
I'm learning more about myself than I care to know. Who knew that I'd experience a second adolescence at 28?
In a little less than two weeks I'll be back in the US, a trip I planned this winter in a fit of homesickness. I should probably stick around, save money, practice my Finnish and hang out by the lake, but I'm elated.
