Hallo from PDX International Airport!
First things first though: the shoe + PDX carpet pic (see above). For my non-Portland friends, this is just one of many strange cultural norms from the city that's keeping it weird.
Itinerary: PDX to Amsterdam to Berlin for three weeks. Then Jena, Germany for four days. Back to Berlin for two days, then Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland! Time to head back to the good old US of A.
I will be eating an unnecessary amount of Döner and taking an equally unnecessary amount of photos. And just generally soaking in centuries of German history and stunning architecture.
So, ¡adiós América! Oh the irony of taking four years of Spanish only to study abroad in Germany! Tschüs.
