Two weeks from today, we’ll catch our flight back to the U.S. Whether or not this will be a permanent move is still up in the air; but we’re preparing as though it is. Overwhelmed by the sheer amount of things we have to do, Andrew and I have taken two bold steps in packing up our place. First, we sat down with our large bowl of business cards from restaurants and sorted through them, throwing some away, keeping others. Second, we packed up one “light” box (our sheep pelt from Romania, some DVDs, our Carnival masks from Venice) with the intention of mailing it, decided it was too heavy for UPS (7kg is over 250 euros—ouch) and that we don’t trust the Spanish postal system enough to send it that way, and subsequently are now stepping around the box in our living room. Progress.
