Astoundingly, when I arrived on 1 November in Indianapolis, Indiana it turned out that Halloween was going on. The city had a weather problem the day before and rescheduled Halloween because of that. Due to that, in 2013 I saw children in costumes going around asking for treats for the first time…well, there were a few who did so the first year I was in Germany but it is not so popular there.
You have probably heard the sayings ‘There is no going back’ and also that ‘You can never step into the same river twice’. Well, the no going back thing is about the second saying in some cases. Even being here this long has changed the situation.
I have missed home and my son and have really liked being back in my native nation in a city in which I lived for 10 years, but I am not in the right part of town in that, I am not in the part of town with which I have the most experience.
