North America | United States of America (USA) | California – Back in Santa Barbara
I didnt realize the extent of my excitement of returning to the States until a few days after my arrival in Santa Barbara. I have been absolutely thrilled to see all of my friends, spending time with my pregnant girlfriend, Josie, and her family, and appreciating all the comforts our American culture has to offer. My first trip was to Trader Joe’s to get the long savored turkey sausage with red peppers, feta cheese and basil, and a bottle of Kenwood merlot. It’s funny the things you miss when you are away: turkey sausage, good cheese, good red wine and California mexican food (Cuca’s burrito!). I couldnt be happier to be home! The strangest part is being in Santa Barbara and not working, what a luxury this summer will be!
