Our Little Extravagant Trip

We spent Oct 12-30 on an expedition to historic and archaeological sites in the Eastern Mediterranean, by air through CDG to Rome; cruise on Voyages to Antiquity to Sicily, Athens, Greek Isles, and Turkey; and flight home also through CDG.

We missed a strike by airline workers in Europe on the way in (called off at the last minute) and TSA shootings at LAX on our return (we went through two days before). And the trip itself was wonderful. K and I posted occasional photos to FB, but I have about 5000 of them to look through.

We're still sleeping funny hours.
