Our vacation is coming very quickly to a close. By the end of this week we will be travelling back to the states. It has been a very difficult trip at some moments, to say the least. But then at other times...the very best memories. I missed by grandmother's funeral on Saturday. I was walking among the penquins. I laughed and cried - but for the most part I held it together. I haven't really had the heart to blog much. So I will leave you with some pictures for now from the past several days and tell the stories more later...there are lots of stories to tell.
