Back home

December 1st, 2007

Went home, now I’m back home :)
It’s funny, that home concept, but Zagreb is my home, and so is Philly… We’re back in the Philly one now. Two weeks in Zagreb were good, maybe not as crazy as they were in the past, partially due to the fact we’re all older and lamer now, and most of my friends have regular jobs and lives there. We did some light drinking, hanging out, visiting my small family, and also some running and swimming. You’d think that leaving Zagreb would get easier over the years, and that I’d get used to it, but I’ll be damned if it got any easier. It’s now more than ever that I’d like to move back there, but we’ll have to wait a couple of years before trying that.

I managed to cast my vote in Croatian parliamentary elections, 90 minutes before my plane took off. However, a week later we still don’t know who will assemble the next government, as both major parties are struggling to make a viable coalition.

Now that we’re back, I did my first long run on Kelly Drive in 4 weeks. When I woke up I realized that running 18 miles on the same old trail is really boring, and decided to look up the Philly Runners club. I thought the whole running with strangers thing will be awkward, but it worked out really well. I had company for the first 8 miles of my run, which made it bearable. Will repeat that with other long runs before the Arizona marathon in January.

In Nepal news, it looks like someone found what might be Yeti footprints. I better have that camera ready in case he sneaks up on us…

    Well, despite the trouble, having two homes is always better than one, no matter how much of a pain it is sometimes. I’m heading in to split living myself, so I’m getting more aware of the problems you’re having. At least you speak both languages. Just imagine if the other place had been Germany!
