Berlin, Madrid, München, Hamburg

I have a little less than a month left in Germany, and I can't believe it. I made myself a wallet calender yesterday evening to keep everything in my head. I get out of school on the 22nd, I found out that my host mother booked a vacation house in Munich for the first eight days or so of vacation, and then I've made plans to visit amazing family friends in Hamburg after that, and then I only have four more days and I'll be finding myself in the airport crying my eyes out! How did this happen!? I couldn't fall asleep last night thinking about it. In any case, instead of delving into my difficulties accepting the fact that I have less than a month left, I'll give a little overview of what I've been up to since the last time I wrote.

The last week of May I went to Berlin for my End of Stay Orientation. I wasn't really looking forward to going, but by the end of the week I didn't want to leave. At the midstay camp we all met eachother for a second time, but this time we were able to see all fifty of us, and form deeper friendships with many. By now, writing this, it feels like so long ago, and I don't really know how to describe all the things that happened and all the feelings we felt. A good friend of mine wrote an amazing blog post about it all, and I asked her if I could provide the link here. She said everything a thousand times better than I could think to. (She also has a lot of really good photos, so please check it out!!).

This last week, from Thursday to Sunday, I was in Madrid with the Spanish classes of my school. It was a fantastic experience, and I definitely want to find a way to go back and learn Spanish! I think pictures can describe everything better than words...
