Six months (January 17, 2002)

It is our halfway point through our trip! Six months seems like a year, and I can hardly believe that we are only halfway through. But even if we turn back, it will still take another six months to backtrack through our voyage. A lot of these places I didn't even know existed: Rarotonga and Mauritius, for example.

My favorite part of the trip so far has been seeing new things. Tanzania was my most favorite. The elephant charge was my favorite part of the safari; it was the closest thing to being hunted. My least favorite part has been going from place to place without stopping for a long time, like we did in Australia and New Zealand.

I am looking forward to seeing Dawn, David and Keegan (my baby nephew). My least favorite part has been being away from everyone and everything. I miss our garage mat, my friends and our house. I miss my family too. If we could have our house and the trip together then I would be perfectly happy.

For some reason, Paris wasn't as impressive as I thought it would be. For one thing, it was invaded by McDonald's. The Eiffel Tower was not as big as I thought it was going to be and there was very little to do there. Also, France seems a lot like home because I know the language well. It is very cold here now and it is harder to go outside without many layers of clothes on.

A few days ago, my Uncle Matt and Aunt Joanne came to visit with us. Our first night there we had Raclette (Raclette is a traditional hunter's meal from the Jura mountains) and they said that they liked it a lot. The next day we showed them around the backyard (or the front yard, as Mom and Dad put it) and we explored more of it with them. Then they had to leave, and I was sad, because they spent most of the time reading tour books. And then I heard that Dad was going to go with them, and I got really sad because he was going to be going away for three days.
