I SAW
The Herculean Roman Coliseum
and the beautiful skyline from the London Eye



I HEARD
The bustle of the city streets in Paris
and the foreign-sounding tour guides on the microphone



I SMELLED
The polluted Parisian air
and the stuffy airplane air
and finally, the great smell of New York air



I TASTED
The perfectly al dente pasta
and the prefab airline food (What’s the deal with it?)



I FELT
SCARED OUT OF MY MIND right before I repelled the 10-story castle
And then happy that I did it, my heart still pounding



I SAID
“Goodbye” to my friends
and then Goodbye” to Europe



IT WAS THE STRANGEST THING:
There is a bathroom on top of the Eiffel Tower…
and I used it!
