Day 56: Onwards and Upwards

Reflections in the Train, lying on my back looking up at the baggage.

Train to Prague. Where am I at the two month point?

Sometimes, I can just ramble in German. Other days are not so pretty. I have been through bouts of homesickness and home-feeling-ness. Learned about history and art. But I can't help but feel like there are a billion more steps ahead of me. Elizabeth quoted Goethe recently, "Mit dem Wissen wächst der Zweifel.“

And perhaps fitting is ”Je mehr ich weiß, erkenne ich, dass ich nicht weiß." I have had to come to terms with the slow learning process of truly absorbing a language, though I have the feeling that it should somehow go faster.

Langauge is not German. Had gotten pretty used to understanding foreign language. Currency is different.

Was feeling ready for new adventure. Now missing the familiarity of Berlin. Prague is sterile, but beautiful.

Suitcases? Heavy but surprisingly organized.
