Goodbye Texas! Great to See You Again, My Beloved Tennessee!
After two months of Spanish immersion in San Antonio at the Mexican American College I have returned back home to my beloved Tennessee.
Texas, it was good meeting you for the first time, but Tennessee (and my other seminarian’s obligations) was calling me back home.
Me and one other Nashville seminarian left on Friday 4:00am IN THE MORNING (I know right) and traveled without stop from San Antonio back to middle Tennessee, and he dropped me off back at my summer parish after 5:30pm. I have the path taken pictured below from Google Maps. The path was pretty much the top 13hr one in the darker blue. He was the one who brought his car, and, let me tell you, he ATE those miles for breakfast AND lunch. Relentless driving. He didn’t even as me to drive a shift or two. I just sat back.
Now I am back with the pastor and people of St. Christophers and the great Volunteer State.
