Another exchange program is taking me to study at Universität, Bern. In a few hours.
Before settling in Switzerland for the break-less, intense fall semester, I plan to spend a few days in Dublin, London, Edinburgh, Stockholm, Budapest, and Paris. Generous friends and acquaintences who have offered me places to stay along with economy European airlines are making this dream a dream. Not a reality. Yet.
After solving a final Slylock Fox mystery, and downing a bowl of Edy's Grand Ice Cream lastnight with some nieces, I am completely prepared to leave for 4 and 1/2 months.
Never mind the half-filled suitcases and piles of stuff on the floor behind me.
