So mom and dad are back in the United States of America and I will be in 20some odd days. It's kind of scary that it's almost over. Although I can definately state that people are ready to go home, but there is a part of me that is not ready to leave. I have this feeling like when I walk down a street Rome changes everyday. While I'm not certain if it is the new foot steps of the 10,000 tourist that followed that same trail the day before or if the city and I are finally getting to know each other. Anyway, I am looking forward to some of the comforts of the United States, such as skim milk, no fat cheeses, mac n' cheese (there is no cheddar here), etc.

But back to mom and dad, I think that they had a good time. My roommates enjoyed the visit and feel like they understand why I am the way that I am, a little bit better now.

I talked to mom yesterday and she seemed to be doing fine, although her talk-ative nature means that she misses are frequent chats, which she got back for the week that they were here. She said that although dad had a good time, she might never get him to come back to Europe, which is too bad. Because I gotta tell ya that I'll be back! Hopefully often more than not. Paris is beautiful, London was rainy but also very nice, Berlin was German but still nice, and Venice is my second love. Don't worry Kevin is okay with me loving a city right after him.

Well I should be working on a paper, that I lost my research to yesterday, so I guess that I will get back to work. See you all soon, and talk to you even sooner. hehe
