Living on the Edge

The latest challenge has been how, where, and when to get internet. I am hopping all over Belgium now, trying to connect to any and every network.

The sun has been shining off and on, but the weather is much more bearable than I had imagined it would be. It's even better when I hear that it's snowing in Redding in February.

Currently just playing volleyball and planning more trips! I decided to limit myself to surrounding areas instead of trying to die going everywhere in 2 months.

I have been assumed to be European several times now, so this is progress. An Australian woman in Paris even thought I was French. And I can speak one sentence at a time in French now, but don't count on me understanding the reply or coming back with another sensible thought. I've also realized that the faster I speak French, the better it sounds.

We're heading into the toughest part of our volleyball schedule, so it's do or die time! We need to win these next 6 matches in order to move up a division, and it's definitely possible, so LET'S DO THIS!
