I have realized that being a traveller is hard.

You meet these beautiful amazing people, and before you know it, they are gone.

And again, The Empire Hotel has almost emptied out and I must again make new friends. Especially now because I am officially staying... I have also begun to hang out with more locals so perhaps these will provide me with a bit more length in friends..

It is funny because my friends Hugo, who is a local, told me that there is such a divide in travellers and locals; and so far I have seen this to be true in the city. However, when actually meeting people, they are incredibly interested in me and my experiences in America, especially being from the south. Actually, most people do not know anything about Alabama, geographically, or in any other sense. Most of the time I just get the "sweet home alabama" and then the person repeats the way I say "Alabama". ha.
