It's raining here in San José -- has been for the past two weeks -- and this post just adds to the melancholy. I understand how you feel, because there have been several places that I couldn't wait to stop calling "home," but that has always felt to me like a kind of emptiness or uselessness. I hope living in Bocas, though not for you, has been a good and enjoyable experience.

On another note, please tell Dag to hang in there. It sounds like she's firmly in the second stage of culture shock. She's dealing with all the differences, getting very frustrated about it all, but that's completely normal. When she gets through it, and begins to adapt, she will reach the point when she knows how much she's learning. Or at least, that's the theory.

Happy packing!
