Lots of laundry to do, and mail to open. Thanks for following our travels. Happy New Year!
P.S. When I looked in the mirror this morning, I noticed the last vestiges of my black eyes are now all gone--just in time....
We left Valpo on a crowded bus bound for Santiago, and then transferred to another crowded bus to the airport. It was a long wait for the plane, which departed for Panama City at 4 am on Dec. 30. Both that and the flight to Orlando were smooth, and we arrived there on New Year's Eve at noon. Next morning we were off on our last leg, the 10-hour drive home, which started out in driving rain. Arrived last night in clear, bright moonlight (why does it get dark so early here? We're used to long days now), and woke this morning to a dusting of snow and 13-degree temperatures.
