The united states

I've been back in the states for less than 48 hours now, but I've managed to accomplish a lot of my goals. Yesterday I rose around 5 o'clock and journeyed up to New Brunswick to visit my alma mater. The road work on Route 18 which had hampered pretty much every driver who traversed its winding macadam has finally found completion.

For as long as I can remember, from my first visits to Rutgers in high school to visit my sister and friends the construction had followed that road around like a bad habit. But now Route 18 is great. Really great, actually.

But Route 18 aside, I managed to visit and talk to many of my close friends in New Brunswick before heading up to the City.


I also finished my mom's second shoe during my transatlantic flight. I worked fairly intensely to finish it on time. I'm really pleased with how they both came out and how remarkably close they are to my original vision. Here are the pictures of the pair:
