As I have recently realized, no amount of time would have been enough in Capetown. Whether it be the three weeks I was there or had it been three years I have no doubt leaving would be hard either way and maybe even more so having more time there to meet many more amazing people and partake in many more activities. I think about my trip everyday along with everything it taught me and how it changed me. My first blog entry was entitled 'Beginning with a single step' and this one is 'A journey of a thousand miles'. This trip was a true journey of a thousand miles, but not in a plane, rather it was inside of myself that the real journey happened. As Confucius would say, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Coming back home to the U.S. has been unbelievably difficult. I had no idea that through that single step I took by coming on this trip how it would so drastically change my life and my reality. As much as I miss Capetown and wish everyday I had never left I know that I will return. It's not a goodbye it's a see you later. I will return to Capetown someday and even though it may not be today, which is what I would like, it will happen. Capetown is a part of me, a part that will never leave.
