Brussels seems to get greyer and greyer with every day, or maybe that’s just me longing for the Caribbean sun? Everybody seems to have a cold in Brussels at the moment, I’m on my 2nd one which has now lasted for a week… For those of you who know me and my colds, I can inform you that I now have my dry, very annoying cough again – the one that can last for weeks (I think the record is 2 months of coughing)! At least I don’t have a throat infection AND inflammation at the same time like my friend J, who is going to be my hostess for the next few days together with her boyfriend P. It will be fun to spend some quality time with them before leaving Brussels.
But I’m trying to not feel too miserable, only a few days left to work, the movers come on Friday morning to pick up my last things and on Saturday we have a girls’ night out planned. Next week I finish work on Thursday and I am organising a big farewell party on Saturday the 13th before I head to Sweden on Sunday the 14th. Puerto Rico will have to wait a little, especially as O is heading to Europe for two weeks at the end of the month.
I will be very sad to leave the friends behind, there are so many people dear to me here – but I will be back, at least for visits… And I know that I will keep in touch with everybody; through email, facebook and the blog! Information technology is great!
(O tells me that it rains in Puerto Rico too and according to the weather forecast, it will rain every day this week in San Juan – but at least he gets to go to the beach every now and then)
