I’m hooooooome!

Man, it’s weird to see so many white people. Americans are SO LOUD.

Our plane ride went pretty well, all 2 1/2 12 hours of it. We took off around quarter after twelve (Beijing) and got in to the US about quarter to 3 (Eastern). We were better-prepared this time for a twelve-hour flight, with books, movies (Horton Hears a Who!), and camraderie.

Customs went well, but I think I prefer the Beijing airports.

Incidentally, we made front-page news on the News Journal:

Bus ride home was a little rough; that whole food-and-sleep thing; also, not being in Beijing.

Now I’m back and you get to see EEEEVERYTHING. Have fun reading. Depending on when you check in, there’ll be photos and metadata.
