I wish it were that easy...
Ya know, my relationship with Ukraine is bittersweet. There are many things that I love about this country and so many things that frustrate me, but I guess that's why Peace Corps is here. I guess that's true of any country too. The longer I'm here, the more I like. I suppose that's me just getting acclimated and more settled into my life here.
I think I'll be a bit disoriented and overwhelmed. My life here is really quiet! But, I seriously can't wait to come home and enjoy American convenience. I'm going to eat so much food. I had a dream about spaghetti and meatballs the other night, so I woke up craving it. I made some spaghetti for dinner, but the noodles here are really terrible and the spaghetti sucked. I ate it anyway. I want some hummus, tacos, Chinese, spaghetti, STEAK, hamburger, burrito, falafel, Greek salad, good bread, lentil soup, cheddar soup, salami, peanut butter, olives, wild rice, and so much more. I want to walk into a mall and hear Christmas music, be asked if I need help, while I have a coffee in my hand, and then browse the racks full of beautiful clothes. I want to take a warm, long bath. I want to sit and relax while watching TV and laugh
