It's been 3 years since my last visit and 9 long years since I lived here. Coming back feels like a relief: it's still here and I can always come back. Here, a few early impressions on the 2nd day of a 2-week stay.
  1. Feels like home
  2. It's warm as late summer - open toe shoes, no jacket
  3. I feel way better - something about this place washes away my silly insecurities
  4. Mountains / ocean - hard to argue with the attractiveness of nature
  5. The air is fresh
