time to travel
I am travelling back to home tomorrow -- after 4 months here in New England in the US of A.
The trip was fun, short and fun, and we are out of here, before the weather really starts to misbehave.

Over all there are a lot of impressions -- I am charmed by this place, the speed and the outlook -- the trust and the spirit of ppl. -- but not overcharmed.
and I miss home :)
Will post some pictures of Paris @ Christmas soon.
