THURSDAY 13 OF DECEMBER
The two last weeks has been a very busy time, so I haven´t really had the energy to write on my blog. But now it has finally calmed down a little bit and now I felt that I would like to write about how the last weeks has been.
Friday the 1st of December I was back in Sweden from Ecuador. Sunday 26th of November I started my trip back to Quito from Vilcabamba in south Ecuador, and for the next two nights I stayed in Cuenca. On Monday night I actually went to the cinema, because they had a movie festival in the town. Early on Tuesday morning I took a bus to Quito, which took about 10 hours, and at Thursday morning 7:46 I took my flight back to Sweden. Friday 1st of December 20:30 I was back in Skålö.
I was actually very surprised that it felt so natural to be back home, it felt good. I think it is the first time I have felt happy to be back home from a trip. It didn´t feel weird either and I had no jet lag, which was weird. I guess I was just done in Ecuador, and that I now have other plans and goals them I am eager to deal with. Three months was the perfect time to stay in Ecuador!
So back in Sweden I spent some time with my family and my friends, I even worked three days, we celebrated Christmas 8th of december, and the 10th of December we where off again; me, mom, Mohyeni, Thando, Rebecca and Frida. Next adventure: South Africa.
But when we came to Arlanda to check our flight it said on the screen that it was CANCELLED. We all looked like questionmarks. Cancelled? Inställt? Va? Qué??? We found out that our flight that was leaving from Stockholm to Frankfurt was cancelled because of bad snow weather. No flights where going in or out from Frankfurt. But when we got help, a woman helped hus to re-book our whole trip, so instead of flying to Frankfurt or London we flew to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, and from there to Johannesburg. The new flight just departured a little bit later. The rest of the trip went without any problems. But oh my god how tired I am spending time at buses and flights!
So at Monday 11th of December 17:30 we arrived to Mthatha airport, got picked up directly by Mohyeni´s Laughing friend (that is how he calls him), we went to the supermarket to buy some food, and then we drove those three bumpy hours home to Nqileni in the Wild Coast. So now we are back home in South Africa!
