It has been terrific visiting the US. I love being back in the vibrancy of NY, seeing friends and family, hiking and swimming my way through the state of Maine, talking all day in Philly cafes, and having the chance to explore new cities (San Fran, here I come!). Aside from the oppressive heat and humidity, it's been a great trip. When it's 90+ degrees in Northern Maine, you know there's a problem. I have to say, I'm looking forward to no longer sweating like a whore in church (shout out to Jules!), feeling lethargic and heat tired. I'm so so so looking forward to being back in the winter of Sydney.
Thank you all for a great trip to the US. PLEASE come visit in Sydney. I'd love to show you around the city.
and hellooooooooo sydney! I'm looking forward to seeing you again.

(actually George is tying it up. I'm probably just watching and being unhelpful.)
