So, we're packing up and getting ready to go, and am doing a final email session and internet before completing the packing. I was scribbling in the diary this morning, thinking about just how long we've been away - not that long really, but it feels it. When we left, we were in escapist mode, just wanting to get the hell out of NYC; we have been in slow recovery mode ever since, relaxing more and more and getting more out of the experience of being here. It's so hard to sum things up that I'm not going to. Evaluation is also impossible right now - everything was so different in each place we stopped, that a 'best of' isn't possible except probably next week when I'll be in a whirlwind of culture shock and jetlag. Needless to say, however, it has been utterly amazing. I wish it could go on.

Work, instead, beckons. Ugh.

Bon voyage! Buen regreso! I'll be eager to see the photos and hear more details.

By the way, are you playing with the Tigers again this fall? I've joined the team...not sure if that's good news for the team but I'm very excited.

See you soon!!!

you're playing? BRILLIANT! Will be back next week, although extraordinarily unfit after six weeks of no exercise and many, many, many portions of chips.
