I think that's everything. Hope I didn't forget anything. If I did, it isn't like Europe is a third world country. Yes, I know it isn't even a country in the first place. We found out today our flight is delayed by thirty minutes. We'll land at 7:30 a.m. at Gatwick instead of 7 a.m. Hopefully that won't mess up our bus we have booked to go into the city. We'll make it work.
Tomorrow's itenerary: wake up at 8:45, go buy mailing tube, shower and get ready, freak out a little to make sure we have everything we could possibly need while still respecting the fact that we're carrying our homes on our back, leave here at 12:30 p.m., eat at La Fiesta Mexica, arrive at airport and tearfully kiss our parents goodbye before our flight takes off at 6:05 p.m. At some point there might be ice cream. Hey, it's $50 a day for the next 28 days, meaning eating bread and water. Ice cream is a last farewell to this 104 degree heat. Average temp for the countries we're visiting is 75. I can feel your jealousy already.
Got the international data plan for my Blackberry Storm. Unlimited email/browser/Blackberry messenger, $.50 to send a text, $.05 to receive one. $1.29/minute to make calls. Won't be doing that much. We'll be skypin' it up.
Finally sleep. I'll update on the accomodations on the plane.
