Wow, this place looks empty. We were partying in the pub down the street. I'll go call all the kids over. Meanwhile, one pina colada, please barkeep, and some cafe con leche.

I just came from home, but it looks like the others are on their way over. Small crowd coming down the sidewalk.

I’ll wait for them, but in the meantime, can I get a triple espresso over ice?

Dude - nice to see you. Are you still at the university nestled in the country in a northwestern state?

In fact I am at home for exactly 7 more days before venturing out into the cold strange world of Albert-Ludwigs Universität in Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, DE for a summer semester! (Well, actually, that’s after 10 Days Alone in Berlin, which should be a film title if it isn’t already.)

How’s things in the great white north?

(Do I have your address? I plan to send many postcards.)

Hey galen - weren't you 14 when we first met? You must be an adult by now. Wow and crossing the big pond for 10 days alone in Berlin. Do you know anyone there?

I fled the great white north for a not-long-enough stint in Hurricane Irma's last known address. I planned to send many postcards from down here, but only managed to get one off to _refugee_. A package from her was waiting for me when I got here. Also, a Happy New Year postcard from wasoxygen so I plan to write him back as well.

The problem was the presence of OTHER PEOPLE. Even flagamuffin knows how much I need solitude - and none was available. But I'm hoping now to return at the end of April and will send all of hubski postcards, especially if they send some here. Heading to Cuba Friday on a humanitarian mission.

What's that about?

I believe I was 15 when we met, but don't quote me on that. I'll be turning 19 in Germany :)

I don't know anyone in Berlin, but after that I'm meeting up with 8 other students and 1 prof from my school for the semester. It's a joint study group thing between the two universities.

PM me your FL address and I'll make sure to drop a Postkarte in the mail!

Cuba sounds interesting. What's the mission? Or is it super secret?
