Today was a bittersweet final day in southern California. I had to say goodbye to two of my new friends at 4:30 in the morning, and more farewells were required throughout the day. Avery and I both had late flights out of LAX, but thanks to Bryan’s kindness he took us to the Science Center in LA and drove us to the airport in the evening, so we didn’t end up bored and stranded at CSULB all day. My flight to Oakland was short but with beautiful mountain views (for the time that I was awake), and now I get to spend some quality time with my brother!
While I’m happy to be back in a place that composts, carpools, and is biker-friendly, I will go to sleep tonight remembering all the good times I had with the wonderful folks I met on this program. GO BEACH.
