How I Began My Summer Vacation
One last day sunning myself and splashing around at the Embassy pool with my friends, one last BBQ saying good-bye to teachers who are leaving us, one last walk in the park..... I'd love to say that this is how I spent my last day in Tirana before leaving for the summer holidays. Ha! This is more my reality: Curled up under a comforter even though it's a least 90 degrees outside, doubled over in pain as my stomach rages within me, trying desperately to drink some Sprite (thanks Amy for delivering me some!). Yep that's right. My students gave me a memorable parting gift... the stomach flu. Good news is, it's only the 24 hour type so I should be recovered in time for Rome. Let's hope.
