My two-week vacation is coming to a close after the ‘official’ holiday on Monday and I’m not sure I’m ready to go back. I could sure get used to being home all of the time.
One good thing is that I am leaving for Brazil for work again on the 8th and will be there for almost two weeks — including a side trip to Blumenau once again.
As always, I anticipate seeing no one that I knew from my mission, so it feels a bit like going to a ghost town, albeit filled with strangers. There is just something about re-visiting the first city of my mission and re-living the almost 8 months I spent there 1978-79 that makes me feel like I’m “home” and in a much simpler version of my life.
Last time I was there, I located Betty Clements’ grave and that was a major thing on my checklist. This time, I have no agenda other than to passear a bit.
