|Amelie and her girlfriend, Paula|
I love it when people are waiting there with open arms in the airport lobby. In middle school, my entire 8th grade class went on an East Coast Trip for a week at the end of the year. I walked off the plane, scanned through the sea of "Welcome Back" balloons and we missed you signs only to realize I didn't see anyone I recognized. Guess who's family got "stuck in traffic"? My older sister, Diana, kindly revealed to me that there was no traffic, they had gotten distracted watching the Simpsons. I missed you too, guys.
My first order of business in Hamburg after a catch up session with Amelie was to go shopping for a new and updated wardrobe. This is something I have been looking forward to since I was in Yekaterinburg and I really started to realize that I look the same in ever since picture I take of myself. I couldn't justify the extra weight until now, as my backpacking experience is nearly over. On a more practical note, I feel like I would freeze to death if I didn't buy some new warm cloths. It is starting to get below 50 degrees F (7 degrees C).
After spending like there is no tomorrow at H&M, I made my way past these beautiful sites.
