After an eighteen hour ride on the train from New York, we arrived in a little town called Toccoa, somewhere in northern Georgia. There wasn’t much there, and at 06:00 in the morning the little town was totally empty. My mom was waiting for us at the station, and snapped a couple quick photos of the exhausted travelers.

But, in the end we made it! No major problems, although Lena lost her beloved brown Cardigan, I ended up with a broken back from sitting for too long, and Lena thought she was going to die when the plane started bouncing up and down somewhere high above Canada…

Nothing much more to write about that, so I will just post a few photos from the long journey from Germany to the United States…
