I feasted on pork last night to celebrate my return to the good old US of A. A short (and cheap!) 13 hour flight from Cairo deposited me safely despite some insane maneuvering during the landing approach - ostensibly the same flight plan used to airlift supplies to West Berlin in the 1950's - and I was welcomed back by a news report about a set of couples who were simultaneously wed on a rollercoaster. I think I prefer my televisual news to be in a foreign tongue and script, thank you much.
Anyways, the weather is nice and I was able to go back to sleep after waking at 0430 LMT, so all is good!
