Bags are Packed

Well actually, I’m almost packed. I leave for Europe tomorrow afternoon (Saturday). In the interest of minimizing any negative impact to the delicate balance that is international relations, I have decided to leave my banjo at home. I’m excited about hooking up with several people I have not seen face to face for almost two years. I’m just not very excited about the trip over. We checked with the airlines to see if we could upgrade and were essentially told that for the price we paid for these tickets, we’re lucky they aren’t requiring us to load our own luggage. Our roundtrip tickets are well under $500 each. How can they possibly earn a living at that rate?

Lord willing, my next post should be from Paris… Au revoir!
