Home again...

And alive, even. Talked to a fascinating woman on the plane who does week long tours to France (3-7 people) for about $1300/person. What she described sounded delightful. We had a wonderful discussion on various types of food tastings such as chocolate, wine, caviar, pastries, etc... At the end of the plane ride, she thanked me for being so kind and outgoing. She had been feeling really bad. You see, the murdered woman found on the property belonging to actor Carroll Spinney who plays Big Bird was her sister-in-law and she was still having a hard time with the whole thing. I meet the most interesting people with sometimes incredible backstories.
