My trip started off disasterously, but I was soon buoyed having met with many friends & family. Thank you to everyone for your love & support, it has really helped me. Next time I wont spend as long as 9 months away.

I was inebriated most nights, special thanks to Tim for putting me up and tolerating me regularly stumbling into his apartment during the early hours.
