We’re now one leg on our way to Managua, sitting in the Houston airport, and I assure you, everything Theresa wrote yesterday is still true. It still hasn’t really hit. It’s starting to though. We were talking at lunch about how we wouldn’t step back on US soil for a full year. That’s a liberating and yet kind of terrifying thought. But above anything it’s exciting. As we’ve been saying, this trip will be memorable one way or another.
So we’re riding off in style, using our two free President’s Club passes to sit in the Continental Club lounge with all of its free perks, two backpackers not quite fitting in with the world of businessmen. But I guess we all use the free internet just the same. I think it’s quite a different experience than we’re used to. Anyway, here’s us, sitting in the lounge, in our last few hours on US soil and the most comfort we’ll likely see for months.

I would call that picture quite scary, except it’s clearly an awkward self-portrait, so I’ll call it “awesome” instead.
T, are those new glasses or have I just been oblivious for somewhere between awhile and a long time? Granted I don’t see you often, so I can’t be responsible for noticing such changes…
You two look as happy as someone who just won the lottery. You both are glowing and filled with excitement. Dad and I are so thrilled that you all have this opportunity and can’t wait to see you all in March. We will be following your blog very closely. I posted your itinerary on my wall, am ready to follow your journey on my wall map and have been checking the time zones where you are and where you will be.
I can’t wait to live vicariously through you for the next year:). Go have some fun for all of us!
