I'm back in Seattle now, catching up with the internets and e-mail and trying to make my feet less sore and pretending that I didn't catch a cold on the ten-hour flight. I have a bunch of pictures (although I limited myself to one modest SD card) that I will look at / flickrize tomorrow when I feel like not doing work.

I have some notes from my trip in a little notebook that might turn into posts later, but maybe that will be a good way to kill time on the plane to Michigan this weekend. I mean, this is already very asynchronous anyway; so what's a few more days?


Glad you made it home! And I also tried to pretend I didn't catch a cold on my flight home last week, but I definitely did. So weird.

I've been home a week and still haven't posted about London or even uploaded my pictures! Complete laziness.

Did you have a wonderful time in Paris/Leiden/Amsterdam?
. . . and I was hoping to just copy and paste your posts for my London recaps!

they should really do something about airplanes. It seems like there's always some sort of cold to be caught on long flights (which only makes the post-vacation period more fun).
Writing my London posts is my plan for this evening, so if you wait long enough, you might still be able to!

I agree, it's completely stupid. But I guess I'm just happy that I got sick from the flight home rather than the flight to London...usually when I go on vacation I get sick at the beginning but this time I'm mixing it up by being sick both before and after, but not during.
have you taken hostels.com up on their "penny for your thoughts" request about Ye Olde Marylebone?

for what it's worth, the privacy levels in the other hostels was lower, but the beds were more comfortable!
I haven't yet, but I'm definitely going to. I started to a couple of times, but was having a hard time expressing exactly why I think no one should stay there ever. I mean it wasn't really so awful, but then again it sort of was. And like I didn't even know how to rate things...like the security was excellent I guess if you look at it one way, but horrible if you looked at it another. Stupid Marylebone. Have you filled it out yet?

I think I would have happily taken a more comfort for less privacy trade. That bed was just such a nightmare.
How was Paris ?
You need Airborne.
Welcome back. I thought about you!

How long will you be in Michigan? Will you be in Luddington the whole time? I'll be there the 10th - 14th, some in the 'burg and some in Irons, which isn't far from Luddington. . .
I'll be there from the 3rd to the 11th -- not really sure about the operational details. I'm mostly at the mercy of the locals. I guess I do know that I'll be around Grand Rapids on the 11th, since I fly out of GRR.
Well, keep me posted. Cindy and Jennifer will also be in town, so we may be able to have a "mini" table 15 reunion if things line up right. We'll see - que cera, cera. Or however you spell that.
also: I have a postcard for you, but I forgot to bring addresses with me. The computer/internet have ruined my ability to remember anything.
sweet! and, i would never be able to remember addresses!! maybe my family's, since none of them have moved in 20 years or whatever. :)
