You should be excited! I definitely enjoyed my trip, even more so now than I did when I was there. Like I described in a couple of posts, the days can be long, tedious, and outright uneventful, but even when you’re sitting there brooding about the lack of action, you can’t deny the awesomeness of what’s around you and the unique opportunity you have to be right in the middle of it in its stillness. It makes those exciting moments even more worth it. I stayed for a month.
