I would have had to fly back

Eric will be receiving the documents he needs to travel into the U.S. in two weeks.I have a ticket home. I'm leaving tomorrow for America!
Here are a few more pictures of our town...
We found a picture of the street we used to live on...
But I was confused when I saw it. "That can't be right!
", I said "All the buildings look entirely different! Our apartment building doesn't look the same at all. How can that be?
But opon further investigation we found THIS photo taken in the 1940's. It's the same street from a different angle.
Apparently our street had been bombed and rebuilt in the 1950's. The only thing that remained standing was the church...
I passed our old flat today. It was so strange not having the key to the front door and seeing that someone else now lives in our apartment
I slowly walked by.
