Once again, it's here. The end of a long journey. I wish I were so eloquent as to write a tale of my travels like Mr. Bilbo Baggins, but sadly I'm not...nor does my tale contain dragons and dwarves and elves, so it might not be as interesting. I leave Durban tomorrow. (And after a 33 hour trip) I'm going back home to see my parents, and I fully expect the desert to welcome me with a dry blast of blazing heat as I walk out of the airport doors. I haven't seen "home" in 7 months. Arizona will always be my home of homes, where I grew up, the place that anchors me to so many people I love. Furthermore, I've come to appreciate its unique beauty. Phoenix is my favorite city to fly into at night and the mountains capture my eye and my heart during the day. As someone who hated it growing up, I've learned a big lesson in appreciating what you have from this city. Oh man, it has been a whirlwind few months, and I can't believe it's ending. I'm going to try and write a bit more about Durban and my trip, but for now I'm so excited to come back to the US, I can't imagine a better place to be going home to.
