As you might suspect, it takes a while to digest a trip like this. I've been home for a couple weeks now, and at times it all seems almost... fake. Sometimes it feels like it happened a long time ago. Sometimes I wake up and forget I'm actually home. It's hard to describe.

The time has however, allowed me some time to go through some things and reflect a bit. I've had a chance to compile a few numbers. Below are some interesting facts and figures I've managed to generate. A bit of an "at a glance" sheet if you will. And I will.

Rumah tangga harmonis adalah tujuan semua orang. Kebahagiyaan itu terjadi bukan hanya karena segudang uang saja, tp masalah sexualitas harus juga diperhatikan dengan baik. Untuk mengantisipasi terjadinya problem sexual kami memberikan solusinya dengan mengonsumsi supleman kejantanan pria. Obat yang terbukti bagus dan sudah banyak yang mengakui kehebatan nya

Get fit with motion-based games. Gaming is no longer a completely sedentary activity, and more and more people are taking advantage of new motion capture technology to physically interact with their games. A whole new genre of fitness games has sprung up, and they are a fun way to incorporate more exercise into your life.
