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. Â 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. Â Sigh. Â Hopefully we’ll make Dulles/Baltimore before tomorrow night.
