I've been living in Palo Alto, CA, just south of San Francisco, for almost a month now. Since leaving McMurdo, I've had a lot of time to think, and it's made me realize that I made the right decision, and that there are other adventures ahead of me until the day when I can finally return to my home at the bottom of the world.
Next week I'll embark on the first of these adventures, a two week trip to New York City (where I've been many times and love very much) and Washington D.C. (which will be a brand new place for me to explore!).
