Yesterday I came home from work and was very sleepy. I took a nap and Adam played a Johnny Cash’s version of “We’ll meet again”. We then talked about how strange it is to be leaving yet another place and it is very typical that just about that moment you start meeting many interesting people. It is probably also connected to the fact that here in Manchester most of our friends have left for fieldwork and will return here again but then we will be miles away. And as we were listening to this song for about the 5th time, contemplating who we will have a chance to see before leaving, whether we will be able to return to places we love in Scotland, how nice it will be to spend whole summer with family and friends in Czech who we have scarcely seen in last four years,… it has slowly hit us in our face.
We have realised that in two months time we will be probably just moving out of this flat, leaving for Scotland and thus starting the first part of our journey. It is very exciting – but there is a feeling of nostalgia in it already. So this is for you as much as for us, because we know that we’ll meet again, but it is hard to say where and when.
