Last Day Blues

It is late night now, and tomorrow I fly out. Anything that I have not yet done will remain undone, anyone that I have not yet seen I will not get to see. My time here is now over, and I am heading back to my home in South America, with a quick stop in New Zealand.

Farewelling my parents as I leave Australia
A last farewell to my parents before leaving Australia.
One of the things that has amazed me is how hard it is to get around to everybody in the small amount of time that I have been here. Although there has been lots of time in terms of days, most people seem to only have their nights spare to catch up with people, which leaves me with big chunks of the daytime free and nobody to see. As a result, and also because of some poor planning, there have been some people dear to me whom I have not been able to see.

This seems crazy now, looking back on it, but yet somehow it happened. There is no chance now to undo what is done, to find time where it no longer exists. Now I am gone for yet another period of unspecified time. Hopefully the next time we will be able to catch up.
