Day 41
Monday, January 17
We flew all night and into the next day from Harare to JoBurg to Dakar to DC to Chicago. Now we are in the air somewhere over the midwest on our way to Phoenix then Burbank to end our 38 hour jet ride.  The boys have been exceptional travelers!   So helpful without a complaint.  We took our malaria medicine with our breakfast burritos in DC.  In Chicago we had pizza and marveled how Chicago could feel like home.   Everything is familiar and feels "normal".  Like electricity!  Like tap water you can drink without fear!  Like toilet paper and toilet seats and hot water and soap in the bathrooms.  Things that billions of people around the globe would never think to "expect".  Dozens of choices at the food court with FREE condiments and bottomless drinks!  (I really missed mustard and mayonaise.  Help me!)  I love to travel but I really love coming home!
When we checked in this morning we heard that Max's back legs still aren't working but he is eating and drinking like a champ.  I hope the sight of the boys will make a difference for the faithful fella!  We will get to Grandma Plachy's house around 6:00 this evening and spend the night there, looking at pictures and sharing crazy stories.  We hope to get home early afternoon on Tuesday.
