At some point this weekend, for the first time, I started to feel homesick. For where exactly I don't know.
I still think it was a good idea to extend my stay in Rio. I bought myself more time to plan for my return. I would have been flying back in 10 days, but now I have 10 + 33 days to figure out my next move. Also, it's easier here to stay focused and to be healthy.
Making friends, however, is not so easy — especially without a phone. Somehow I had more friends in BA. Here in Rio I have maybe one or two. Don't get me wrong, I've been going out a lot since I got here, but it's all been with the same friend. That's making me feel too dependant, which is not a place I like to be.
Maybe I'm beginning to feel like the world I left behind is moving on without me. Winter is over and a new life is beginning and I'm not part of it. Is it FOMO? Or has adventure been dulled by normalcy?
