I am returned.

Stockholm to Paris to Cincinatti to Portland in 21 hours.

I must say that it is somewhat surreal to be here...I am not sure quite how to describe it...

It will take awhile for me to realize that I will not be going to back to Sweden anytime soon, that those of whom I have spent the last 8 months living with are now very far away. Woe to those who are around me when I do realize this.

But nonetheless...I am here. It is nice to be back in the familiar.
