The time has come

My last day in the office. Bittersweet, but okay because I will see a few colleagues next week in New York and the rest in 4 weeks. Oxford sure did me a favor and waited till my last day to be really gloomy and rainy and chilly... I had to wear my coat today. Not sure I am looking forward to the blistering heat and humidity at home though.

Because I missed the bus coming home yesterday by roughy 5 ft. I made sure to be early today. (seriously, I was 5 ft. From the door and the driver left... They don't wait for anyone!) but this bus was not my normal bus, this one was neon green and yellow. And drove like the wheels were falling off and the brakes were too tight.

Since I did most of my packing last night, I decided to go for a nice dinner out. I have heard great things about the Chiang Mai Thai Restaurant. It is tucked away off the High Street. Pretty easy to miss actually.

I ordered a Thai iced tea. It was... Different. It was creamy. Sort of tasted like melted sweet cream ice cream with a little tea flavor too. It was almost dessert like.

I had Gai Prik Pao and Khoa Suay. It was a spicy chili chicken with cashews and onion and Thai herbs with jasmine rice. Really tasty and pretty spicy. Just what I wanted! And of course I had to end my trip with Thai. What else would I have had?!

Then I walked back home, taking in the city centre that has been my home for the last 3.5 weeks.

I am going to miss this place.

But I will be back soon!

And seriously- I am super excited to get home! This time tomorrow I will be on my second flight and about an hour away from Cincinnati!
