We had a really great time in Oakland, visiting with Hilary and Aaron, and having dinner with Jerry and Carrie. Tea, Ethiopian, Italian, Ice Cream, cards, and other such relaxing pursuits. Typing from the airport as we attempt to fly to West Virginia.
Lessons learned: always always always call more than one cab company when you have a plane to catch. That way when one of them doesn’t show up, you don’t miss your flight waiting for the next cab to come. It’s tough to find a new flight around the holidays! It figures that we’d make every other flight on this trip (including the Paris one, with a night bus transfer to a train to the airport, and miss the domestic flight from an easy airport in our own country. Sigh. Hopefully we’ll make Dulles/Baltimore before tomorrow night.
