Or, at least, back to what’s ”home” to me right now… Which is Tokyo, ‘cause
where I lay my head is home, yeah yeah :)
Caught a bit of a cold, I’m coughing my throat inside out and my ears are still deaf from the rapid descent towards Narita, but I think I’m going to get well pretty soon… Or, at least, I hope I will, because I have a lot of stuff to get done before I reopen the shop. Anyway, nothing a fistful of medicine can’t deal with, so I’m sure I’ll be back to alright in no time ;)
What follows is, in this very order, responding to all e-mails sitting in my inbox, updating whatever I need to update on the websites, preparing my tools, sorting out a ton of photos I took in România and figuring out a way to share them with you… and trying to get all these done in such a manner to allow me for one additional day-off before the 1st of November, ‘cause it seems I’m going to need to pay a couple of visits to my dentist…
The Trip Itself…
…was a blast! Easily disregarding the fact that the Romanian authorities welcomed me with the not-at-all-unexpected
we’re going to have to ask you to show us what you have in your luggage greeting and not so easily but bravely disregarding the average of 3°C temperatures of the upcoming winter, my stay there was a total joy.
Two years since the previous visit and all the promises they made —namely drinking the drinks, eating the food and partying the parties— were kept ad litteram, both by my family and my friends :D
I also had time to take a short trip-in-a-trip, four days on the road, visiting my mother’s birthplace and a bunch of historical places throughout the central and northern parts of the country —mostly churches and monasteries— so I guess I can say I had a really good one. Not too much time to rest or bask in whatever I would’ve liked to bask in during the short periods between all these, but I still have a couple of days left so I guess all the resting and the basking will have to be done in Tokyo :)
As I was saying, I have a ton of photos so, as soon as I’m done writing e-mail replies and website updates, I’ll figure out a way —flickr not being an option anymore— to put some of them online for your viewing pleasure.
Thanks a lot for reading this and for the e-mails!
I’ll catch you later.
In case I forgot to mention it somewhere else…
…this is not the end of my holiday, it’s just the end of my trip to România. I’ll resume work on Thursday, the 1st of November ;)
