    After/in five weeks

    Hi,

    - After five weeks, I am going back to America.
    - In five weeks, I am going back to America.

    I tried to write such two sentences. I think that using 'in' is OK, but I am not sure about the first one. Is it OK to put 'after' in that sentence?

    Thanks.

    'After' is understandable; 'in' is more natural.
