2019-07-30 Tuesday evening: Bunkmate Jonathan.

Jonathan from Germany is in the bunk above me. He's been in America for 2 months; his first time. He first visited the eastern part of North America (including Boston and Montreal), later Phoenix and Flagstaff, and now here. He commented right away on how big the country is - you just can't see all of it, and you really need a plane or a car to travel around. He asked if I was here on business; I explained briefly about visiting the kids, finding myself without lodging, and despite misgivings ("I'm older and I'm used to having my own space") I said I'm enjoying the hostel experience.
