Ok. Here is what I know. We left Nepal on Sunday afternoon, transited in Singapore to our new flight that left shortly before mid-night, arriving in Seoul on Monday morning, April 15th, at 7:45am. We had a 10 hour layover in Seoul (praise the Lord for a bed and hot shower), and left at 5:50pm for an overnight flight to San Francisco. After flying for 11 hours, we landed at 12:45pm. On Monday. April 15th. I knew this was coming, but I am so exhausted that my only coherent thought is “wait. didn’t I already do Monday the 15th?” It feels like it should be Tuesday. But it’s not. Technically I’ve added a day to my life, but in reality it feels like I’ve had several more sucked away so it doesn’t really matter anyway in the grand scheme of things.

You know you have been flying too long when it is good news that a flight is only 11 hours. Ha. Thankfully though, the travel has been smooth sailing thus far, and I am getting ready to board the last 5 hour flight to DC!! Brad, Autumn and I said goodbye before parting ways after handing in our customs form, and we hung out in the area a bit too long and got kicked out. My suitcase made it, nothing has been lost, and I enjoyed a cafe’ mocha and chocolate chip cookie to get me through this final leg of the journey. The only problem is that the cafe’ didn’t have decaf coffee, but I was so desperate I went for the full-leaded version anyway. That might make this flight interesting. Anyway, I’m also thankful for in-flight entertainment, good movies, blankets, and free wi-fi. I’ve been able to see lots of movies that have been on my list, and some of them were very well done. I recommend seeing The Impossible, Taken 2, Skyfall, and Won’t Back Down. All worth seeing.

Also, one last thing, having been in transit for the last 48 hours I was completely oblivious to what is going on in the world. But this airport is abuzz with people talking about the bombing at the Boston Marathon that happened earlier this morning. So, so sad. I am praying for those injured and for the families of those who are there.

  1. So glad you’re almost here! I must admit I have not seen any of those movies yet, but a few of them are on my list too. Am praying too for the injured and for those who did this.
