Three days since it happened. My worst nightmare: someone at home being in trouble, and me not being there to help.

My mom is sending me a package in a couple days with things that I wish I had brought (luckily it's my birthday so I have a good excuse for getting this package sent to me despite all the complications of the Argentine Customs :)).

I got all my bags, no problems there. Only one of my liquids exploded: my mom packed some honey packets and one got squished, so there is honey all over my tote. Got stared at by all the Argentine folk, understandably since the girl in the mirror has been the only Asian I've seen all day, too. I've had...

I am leaving the country in two weeks.  Two weeks.  The thing is, I haven't realized it yet. I know that when I realize that an event is imminent, I'll start to worry immensely; I'm not. I feel like in two weeks I am going on vacation to somewhere around the United States or even starting my first...
