Today as I was walking home from the train station, I realized that at the exact same time three weeks later, I'd be boarding the plane to Melbourne.
Since I last saw you, the world has not stopped spinning. There was the H1N1 virus that started in Mexico and has since made its way Down Under; Aung Sang Suu Kyi is going on trial for "harbouring" a mysterious US intruder and breaking the rules of her house arrest; a couple in Singapore have been jailed for distributing contentious Christian tracts to Muslims; two US journalists were sentenced to 12 years of hard labour in North Korea; and most recently, you have been involved in protests against the Iranian election.
I admitted that I've been having cold feet as my departure date draws nearer. The same cold feet you had when I told you that I was ready to move over. We're not so different in what we want after all. We're both young, driven and stubborn as can be, and the world is our oyster.
