A speedboat, bus, tut-tut, taxi, a few hours of sleep on a cardboard box in the airport (the floor was freezing and it was offered and I gladly accepted), 3 flights, 4 times through security, 3 more hours in the car, and we’re home! The hot water heater leaked onto our wood floor staining an area in the kitchen, our farm sitter was involved in a hit-and-run accident with our car (only minor damage), and I can’t seem to get a fire going in our blasted woodstove, but things could be much worse right?
All of the chickens seemed to have made it through the last two weeks unscathed, Diego’s leg seems much improved (he was attacked by a band of wild coyotes the week we were trying to leave the country), and Shep has grown. We are thankful for some much needed time away, the opportunity to see more of the world, a great visit with my brother-in-law Joe in China, and a second honeymoon of sorts for us in Koh Samet, Thailand.
In the days to come, some pictures and a short recount of our trip. It’s good to be home.
