It always seems like the journey home is going to take so long, (~38 hours) however the time passed rather quickly. I was still exhausted when Adam picked me up at the airport, however all that exhaustion was forgotten when I saw his face and ran into his arms. There is a magic that exists in that moment, seeing his face for the first time in over a month, hearing his voice, and feeling his arms hold me, the world is still and stable.

Seeing this statue, reminded me that I was no longer in Nepal. Still completely confused about where I was, just I knew I was no longer in Nepal. I arrived in Qatar in the middle of the night, and had one question to answer. Do I need to eat or sleep more? I had a decent amount of time for a layover and Adam and I had discussed that if I was exhausted I would get a hotel room for the 10 hours I had. However I was hungry and really just wanted a shower. So I headed to the lounge, bought a lounge pass and spent the next 10 hours, eating, drinking lots of water, reading, listening to a book, talking with Adam and taking a luxuriously long hot shower.
