Hi Friends!

I’m at the Dulles airport waiting to board my flight to Moscow. I’m excited because, so far at least, things have gone much smoother than expected. I am using Kara’s backpacking backpack (THANKS AGAIN) and everything, including some things L & C asked me to bring to Dubai, fit perfectly! The weight was fine and the airline didn’t even charge me to check it (I thought it was going to be $50). I picked up Blink (Malcolm Gladwell) at Borders here in the airport, which should be an interesting travel read. I’ll let you know if anything jumps out at me. Otherwise I have a “play away” from the library with East of Eden (Steinbeck) on it, and I plan to finish that as I work on my crochet project. I’m also studying 1 Corinthians with my Bible study, so I should have plenty to keep myself occupied! I’ll post this once I get somewhere with free wifi or to Dubai, and will let you know how the traveling goes. Thanks for your prayers.
