OK, MCW and Ms. M, you were right.
I was in...
And it was amazing. 6 1/2 years ago I took my first steps away from home and ended up going to another country. It was my first time out of the country and, in many ways, the first time I realized I can do pretty much anything I put my mind to.
I took over 300 photos over 6 days. I walked almost every street, every borough, and acquired a pretty gnarly blister on my right baby toe. I was reminded what it is like to feel empowered, inspired and excited. And I'll be posting about it over the next few days so that any time I need reminding, I can read and remember.
