So Prague was everything I’d hoped and now I’m in Munich basking in the Bavarian sunlight. Except that it looks like rain. I’m already getting antsy and not wanting to go back home to Tashkent. I knew it would happen, but I’m trying to be Buddhist about it all and accept that everything in life changes and this vacation cannot last forever. A good selling point to this trip is that I almost want to go back to America now, since I really like living in the first world.
First World things I’ve accomplished include:
– Eating a Big Mac
– Eating bagels. (yes Dave, mmmm… bagels)
– Seeing Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
– Drinking very good beer.
Basically it’s going to be diet time when I get back to Tashkent. I can see my friends now: “Oh, you look so happy, but it looks as if you gained a couple kilos.” Well, it hasn’t gotten to the “couple” stage yet, but any more buttery croissants and I’m done for. Not that something like that ever stopped me.
There was a job posting for a web design position I think I would be good for over at Human Rights Watch. But it pays a little less than 30,000 USD a year and I would have to live in New York. The money isn’t that big a deal to me (I’m a volunteer for god’s sake), and it would be valuable experience for a good cause, but is that enough to even live in New York?
