I rode the train. I wrote postcards. I saw an old friend. I didn't shower much. I didn't pack a hairbrush. I wore spandex and sports bras (or a bathing suit). I sweated. I hiked. I ran. I ate grilled food. I drank beers. I met people. I went on walks. I extended my stay. I saw a late night movie. I got dirty, really dirty. I jumped into a river. I went barefoot. I got rained on. I smiled. I laughed. It was summer.
