Moving Out day

Completely moved out of my host families homestead. Frankly, it feels like the end of working on a movie, its just time to move on to the next one (or in this case the next step.)

Before leaving I gave them all a bunch of gifts from the US. Mom is truely an excellent gift picker even for people in another culture she has no idea about. The grandmother & mother & 12 yr old daughter scrafs & jewerly. 9 yr old boy GI Joe figures (ok that my gift) and Mom's idea a Harmonica. The Teenage boy a Tie, Plus Cell phone Air Time (like giving away Gold over here).
His friend who was over all of the time, a Hollywood key chain..

Ok, if you ever need packing advice hire my mom, as I was packing I realized that my mom was a genius cause I used virtually everything that I brought (and the stuff sent away in the other I couldn't even remember what was in there). Totally excellent. In fact, the only thing I can of to have her send at my permanent site are basically soccer related or silly stuff.
