We are home

Wednesday 23 August 2006, 3:29 pm

We left Paraguay at 11 am on Monday, which was 8 am California time. We arrived in San Jose Airport at 2 pm on Tuesday afternoon. Altogether we spent 30 hours traveling, roughly 15 hours in the air and 15 hours waiting in the airports.

Customs and immigration were a breeze everywhere we went. We did not have to give up any liquids (all were stored in our checked luggage); none of our luggage was overweight, even though we did not have any reliable way to weigh it before we left Paraguay; the US customs forms were easy to understand and fill out.

David Brandt picked us up at the airport and brought us home. Thanks, David!

The little bit of food we had left in our house was spoiled, so we went out to Casa Azteca for dinner (and brought home leftovers).
