Just a quick post to let you know we are safely back in the United States after 17 hours of flying and six hours in airports. I am still amazed by air travel. Pilgrims of yore took months and years to reach Jerusalem and return home again. Our airplane flew non-stop halfway around the world from Tel Aviv to Toronto in 11 hours. We flew a northern route across Poland, Denmark and crossed the tip of Greenland before entering Canadian airspace. Our connection in Toronto was the most challenging part of the journey, and we made it into San Francisco later in the evening.
We are spending a few days relaxing, napping and unwinding with family and friends in the Bay Area and we will be back in Charlottesville this weekend.
Blessings to all,
Jim & Lori
