Although I have no pictures to prove it, my wonderful cousin Alastair and Shaila came to pick me up in London around 11 pm at night ( London time ). My flight from Tokyo to Rome was around 12 hours and I didn't sleep a wink. Not even after 2 glasses of red wine and 2 NyQuil.

It was so nice to see a familiar face when I was so tired. My chariot took me to Reading and I promptly showered and fell right asleep on the couch in front of a glorious fan that Al and Shaila provided me with.

Although I felt like I slept for much longer, I woke up just after 5 am for no reason at all. Luckily, Al finally had the HD installed, so I kept myself entertained until everyone else awoke. There isn't much to write about, but I thought it was important to note Alastair's kindness. We got breakfast and snacks at Waitrose and then Al took me to catch the bus to Heathrow and the rest was history.

I was off to Minneapolis by 3 pm and was that much closer to being in my bed at home!
