My flight to DC was delayed by half an hour; otherwise no problems, and it was a fancy new plane. The immigration official who stamped my passport flipped through the pages (over 30 pages thick) and asked me why I travel so much. I said that the best part was coming home. Corny but true.

Very satisfying indeed. A nice change from sitting in front of a computer. The plants look fine - let's hope they survive the heat too!

I should've asked for ducks in my dowry instead of mangy camels.
