All in all, The Grandma Road Trip spanned 16 days, more than 2,709 miles (not counting detours), and 9 states (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois). We visited 2 grandmothers, 4 aunts, 2 uncles, 3 cousins, 1 brother, 1 almost sister-in-law (and two of her relatives!), 1 best friend and her son, 1 sister, 1 nephew, 1 father, 3 dogs, dozens of tangueros and a handful of people who are as good as family. It wasn’t enough, it was too much and it was everything. Now, after it is all over, I am homesick for multiple cities and also convinced there is no place like where the heart is.
