well we made it to london afterall.
our drive to chicago O'Hare went well thanks to kimberly's timing on the matter.
and phydough happily drove off without a whine or bark as i could see.
however, when we arrived we found our flight to be delayed to 1 am departure instead of 930 pm.   we thought strongly of the cool iphones we experimented with at kimberly and steve's as the airport terminal had wi-fi.  oh well.   this was a good lesson in patience.  we are certain that this is just the first of many delays and most likely the shortest.  we might as well get used to it.   (had we called ahead to find this out, it would have thrown our ride's schedule all off so it worked out best this way anyway).   

we flew on air india to london.   quite an experience.   air india automatically gave us vouchers for dinner on check in.   they fed us nicely on board with dinner AND breakfast.  the service was pleasantly gruff.   we also had a nice lesson in the art of the indian queue which was then manipulated loudly by a disgruntled TSA agent.    nonetheless, we arrived tired, but unscathed. 

we were sad to have missed irene's cousin, anneli, in london but practicing the tube (subway) and getting around the city with our packs in an english speaking country was a good dry run. we have been fortunate with the beautiful weather here in london yesterday and today.  

we have had the fortune of good computer access thus far.  but we leave today for central america (just in london to pick up our special round the world tickets.   long story but much cheaper this way--really) and don't know when we will get such a good connection.   

take care
irene and jason
