busy bee

Sorry it's been so long. Things have been hectic and stressful the past few weeks. Mostly with class work, papers, research, that sort of thing. Unfortunately I haven't really been doing any of the cool things I should be doing because I'm stuck inside at my computer writing most of the time. But most of my papers are due next week so I'll have about a week and a half left to chill out in Cuba.

Every day I get stressed out about some cuban educational idiosyncrasy and feel like leaving that very moment. But then the sun pops out and I see something that makes me go "wow" out loud, and I'm back here for good. It's that pendulum, back and forth every single day. You love it one moment, you hate it the next.

It's frustrating, but I love it. Every day I'm wondering how it will be to come home again. It's going to be a jolt to my system, to say the very least. That's all for now. I need to get to the library at the Museo de Bellas Artes before it closes (it's Saturday) and since you can't take out books or photocopy them, I brought my camera to take pictures.

  1. Hmm and that same pendulum continues as we return to our lives in the states. We miss it one moment, the next we're glad to be gone. Great post, Patrick.
