From the perspective of a passenger on a 500 mile per hour airplane, this spherical planet called Earth is pretty small..
Only 16 hours after boarding a plane in near the southern 45th parallel , I am had landed in New York City, near the 45th parallel in the northern hemisphere. A 90 degree shift across the planetary sphere in only about 12 hours of total air time.
Stories aside, and rhetoric left for another day, I am posting just to post. To tell the world that I am back in the US. I am excited to tell my story, to post some pictures, to do all the stuff that is expected, and that I have been looking forward to.
For tonight that means posting this post, and spending some much anticipated time with my friend.
Cheers to being back in the U.S., and glad I got away for a while.
Leave when you can, but never forget what you have here.
