Unfortunately I have not yet left for Germany. Due to some unexplained reasons, something to do with military contracts I am not leaving now till Sept 11. Yes. I have the bad fortune on flying on Sept 11 (or good if you think of all the heightened security.) I was very bitter about my delayed flight especially since I found out FIVE days before I was originally supposed to leave. I was all packed, and all ready. Oh well. So now I have 18 more days in Napa without a job... I've scheduled to get my wisdom teeth out this Saturday but besides that and working out like crazy, I have no plans.
An upside though was since I didn't leave on Sunday, Liz and I were able to join my sister and some friends for a camping trip in Yosemite. We had so much fun! I use to go to the park a lot when I was young and it was so exciting to go back. It definitely needs to become an annual trip! While there I hiked Upper Yosemite falls a.k.a the death march! It was so hard but worth it in the end. We played some beer pong, ate smores, star gazed and even saw a bear every day of the trip. It was a great trip that won't soon be forgotten! My favorite memory was being woken up at 2am to a lady running after a bear screaming "get outta here bear!!" We all laughed about it the entire trip!
Here are some pictures from the trip
