Wishing for Summer
While I was at Innopolis Elmira and I decided to have a photoshoot around the "city." City is in quotes because there wasn't much around. This was actually a two day affair, and I still have more pictures from inside the university, but they are much more difficult to go through and edit. Plus, who doesn't want a reminder of the warm weather? The city isn't big, so I know you've probably seen these views in previous posts. We thought we were going to have to cut this photoshoot early, but it never rained, despite the menacing clouds in the distance. A rainbow even came out to visit us (you can see it in the 5th photo).
I'm looking forward to summer for several reasons. I mentioned before that I like fall and winter, but there is just something wonderful about being able to open your windows and letting your house air out. I also can't wait to not have to put on tons of layers to survive outdoors. I'm never early anymore because I always underestimate the time it takes to put on all my winter attire. The last reason I'm excited for the warm weather is because I will finally go back to the USA. I am still not sure if I will stay in Russia longer. I want to but I have school loans hovering over me like a dark cloud. If I do decide I want to try a 3rd year in Russia I will go back for a visit. Either way, I will go back this summer and I can't wait to eat Mexican food and see my family, in that order! :)
