I was gone, but now I’m back. I expected to do all kinds of work while I was gone, but the Internet connection at the house we stayed at was abysmal. I really wanted to catch up on many things. But I didn’t. I did splash about in this incredible turquoise water, and I did snorkel with dolphins, and I did visit some of the film sites for LOST, and I did eat pancakes with macadamia-nut sauce with Twice the Rice, and did get to visit with another awesome hapa adoptee, and got to take a really uncomfortable red-eye flight home because our original great flight vanished when ATA went kaput. But I’m not complaining. It was a great week and now I’m home and here we go again, back to Life.
