After seven months of living in this lovely city, I’m sad to leave.  I’ll miss the intersection of the old and new cultures, the beautiful scenery, the lively streets and the friends I’ve made.  But, as I never intended to stay here forever, it was inevitable.

In a few days I will make my way back east to Merida where I’ll spend a few days with my friends there before heading back to the US.  I’m looking forward to visiting Merida again.  Returning there feels like going home and I’m excited to see my friends.  Jaime will be feeling better now and I didn’t get to see Rafa on my last trip.

Before I leave though I’ll enjoy my final days in San Cristobal by wandering the streets and markets and doing a bit of souvenir shopping.  I wonder if/when I’ll be back.
