Back from the Muggle World

Hello I'm back. I have a really interesting time in the muggle world. New Orleans was very hot and muggy. The air there just sat on you. The muggles covention was very interesting and it kept me hopping everyday. Then we flew by plane instead of broom to San Jose, CA. It was hot there but it is a dry heat. We drove up the coast to Monterey and boy was it pretty. I saw seals in there natural habitat and I was glad not to see any sharks. From what people tell me they love seals. Glad that they were absent. Well I've got to go and see what my cabin mates have been up to.
