A year ago I was in Peru!! I miss it a lot, I want to go back!!
This is it! There is no more time left…tonight I will be on a plane out of Peru. I thought I would never say this, but I wish I could stay here more time. I am missing everything already. This is the hardest part, saying Good Bye. The time went by so fast, it doesn’t even seem that I was here four months. I want to stay longer. One day I will come back to Peru. Today, Saturday, is my last day here. It’s going by very fast, I need it to slow down. I went to the gym to dance one last time. When I was there I kept feeling that it was a normal day. It didn’t feel like my last day there. Even now as I am writing this, it feels like tomorrow I will still be here in Lima, going to church in the morning, after go to the gym, and then have almuerzo en familia. That was my Sunday here in Peru. I am will miss everything, a lot!!
On the other hand, I am also excited to see my family back home. During this four months, I miss a lot of important moments. I want to be able to enjoy those moments with them. It is time for a new chapter in my life, but I will keep ties with Peru because for sure I will come back one day.
Tomorrow I will board a plane back to the U.S. My time in Peru will be over, but I hope to return some day. I have good friends here that I will miss a lot. Still, it doesn’t sink in that it’s over and on Sunday I will not be in Peru anymore. I don’t like good-byes, but that’s how it is. This time that I was here was unforgettable. All the experiences good or bad were worth living. Oh Peru, I learned to love you and I will miss you.
I learned and gained a lot through this experience. I learned countless things about Peru, its culture, and its people. Most importantly, I learned a lot of things about myself and this experience made me a better and stronger person. I gained a new perspective about life and that you have to appreciate what you have. I gained friends and amazing memories that I will remember forever.
The day is almost here. In about 15 days I will be flying back to the US. It is getting to the point where I have contradictory feelings. I really want to go home, but sometimes I want to stay here longer. I will definitely miss my friends here. A lot of people have told me why I don’t stay here. Impossible, it is a crazy idea. However, I know for sure that one day I will return. I don’t know exactly when, but in the future I will be here again.
