I was so lucky to have stayed with the parents of my friend, Yezi. I was a bit bummed from the humidity of the midwest, and bummed to have left the glorious place of Wyoming and South Dakota. They were so kind to me! I was oberwhelmed when I arrived and they pointed me to a table full of food they had made. Homemade, delicious Chinese food. I kept telling myself, "I don't deserve this!!" They were so unbelievably welcoming and kind, it just gets me even more excited about having a home of my own one day.. one that I can share with others.
I spent a little time wandering around Minneapolis, it was a pretty big city though. This begins the trend of city life until I reach the east coast. I'm not too excited about that, so I'll probably work my way over there fairly quickly. Went climbing at a local gym, only to find that the grading was so difficult.. or that I was completely out of shape. It hasn't even been that long, but I suspect I'll be totally out of shape by the time I reach Kentucky. Which is a huge bummer, but what can I do? There's not much climbing around these parts. We'll see!
