The trip begins
I'm at the Gainesville, Florida, airport waiting for my flight to Atlanta. From there I'll connect to Moscow and then onto Vladivostok. I won't arrive until Sunday, but that will still be Saturday here in Florida because of the time difference.
I almost didn't make it at all! I moved a few weeks ago and forgot to tell the State Department about it. They FedExed my tickets to the old address and had to resend them yesterday. I ran over to the office this morning to get them. Whew!
I tried to post an audio entry using my cell phone, but AudioBlogger seems to be down. I'll try again in Atlanta, then again in Russia using Skype.
Wish me luck!
