Back in the States

Well, all good things come to an end, I guess.  The last day in Stuttgart didn’t yield much entertainment.  We mostly relaxed and took long naps, since we had to be up at 4 the next morning to catch our respective trains.  The flight home was pretty eventless, save for the annoying immigration, customs, baggage check, and security stuff they make you go through.  But after a total of 14 hours of flying time, I was back in Oregon.  After an additional three hours of traffic filled highways, I ended up at home and ate dinner and relaxed.  Due to jet-lag, I didn’t actually get to sleep until around 6:30 the next morning, but hopefully that will pass in the next few days.

Classes and work start again on Monday, so I have two days to fully relax and get re-Americanized.  I’m currently coping with the absence of Bavarian beer and European food.  Perhaps I’ll make a quick stop down at the grocery store and see if I can’t fry up a Bratwurst or two.  And I believe there is a store in town that sells some Munich beer.  Maybe the good times don’t have to end right away…

So, did you go to the orange store? I am currently checking out the German shopping facilities down here too. Will blog that, I think :)
