Cherishing Little Comforts
November 5, 2003 Cherishing Little Comforts, By Yvonne
There are many other things I cherish and one of them is my own space. Considering that my sister and I have to sleep in a three by six foot space for one whole year and a half and considering that my sister loves to spread out when she sleeps, it is very hard and uncomfortable to get to sleep when you are squished at the bottom of the already too small tent with your sisterís elbow stuck in your back.
Perhaps most of all, however, I cherish eating food I recognize. I donít mind eating beaver or slimy pickled mushrooms that leave a jelly like goo all over your plate that gets all over your other food. But really I canít help getting excited about eating a real American hamburger without coleslaw in it. (A coleslaw hamburger is a Polish favorite). I really love this trip but thereís nothing better than having a few small comforts along the way.
