Monday/ Tuesday..?

Jetlagged in the windy city

Hi, just a quick one from me in Chicago airport waiting for the last leg to St Louis. Flight was fine, very long and even longer by the only TV viewing being the American version of The Office (awful) and Starwars or Startrek- (anyone who knows me will know how thrilled I would have been). I bought a lovely book (albeit on the cheesy side) called 'The Gift' which annoyingly was so good I read it in the first 3 hours of the flight and then was left with Starwars and staring out the window at the ocean and the sky. Am already amazed at how big and loud things are here in the US... very loud CELLPHONE conversations and enormous cookies and muffins in every cafe. Sat next to a lovely Somali girl who's an anesthetist in London, she told me various gory stories which broke the journey up a bit, although was also a bit depressing as she'd keep updating me with 'only 7 more hours... 5 more to go...

Empty keyring

View Emma to visit the Learys... on africraigs's travel map.

Hi, just a quick one before I head to Edinburgh's airport, have finally reached the stage where I too am about to embark on the adventure and am at last a teensiest bit excited. Lost my keys yesterday before giving the car to the 'new motor trader' (weird car trading language) thankfully Helen found them, but was just thinking if I lost the keyring now it would be no great loss as it is simply a keyring- no house keys, or car keys or even bike lock keys, all feels very weird.
Until next time... x
