On October 13th, while I was on the train to Celano, I wrote, "there are just so many things I want to take with me that I have learned."
Among many things, I think what I wanted to keep was knowing how generous people can be. We met so many people that gave us their stories, food, places to stay, and advice without expecting anything in return. I want to have such traits and keep those kind of people in my life.
