Hi to everyone! i just wanted to let you know that I've left McMurdo and am on the way home. Right now I'm in Sydney, Australia waiting for my flight to the U.S. It will be a 15 hour flight that takes me to Dallas, Texas. I'm NOT looking forward to the plane ride, but I'll be happy to be home. By the way - I'm writing this on December 14 in Australia, but it's only the 13th in the U.S.
I have several journal entries to post, but I'm going to do it when I'm at a better and more secure internet connection. Please check back over the weekend or on Monday for some new entries.
This tree was in the Christchurch New Zealand Airport. It reminded me that Christmas is on the way.
