Just a quick note to say hi. After 27 hours in transit we arrived in San Francisco this afternoon. The flight was uneventful, except for having my heal break off while running from security to boarding in New York. I threw the shoes away at the boarding gate and flew in bare feet to San Francisco.
Surprisingly, I’m not terribly jetlagged. I put in a full day at the office today and feel fine.
Not really much to share, since today was a workday. I did relish the fact that I was able to walk back to the hotel today after work, it’s an easy 20 minute walk.
They have some sight-seeing and tourist stuff scheduled for later in the week, so there should be more interesting posts soon.
Sarah asked about the blankets the Lesotho men were wearing. Lesotho is a mountainous country, and in winter it gets very cold so the men, and women wear blankets as part of their traditional dress. It has a practical purpose. Traditionally the blankets have been woven, but these days, many of them use modern factory produced blankets as well.
Have a great day.
