Chocolate Covered Joy

It's 1:20am (Spain time) on Monday the 22nd of October, which means it is now officially my birthday.

Woo hoooo!

I am very happy that we'll be heading home later this day. We have a 9am train to Madrid, a metro ride, a late afternoon flight to Amsterdam, and an overnight flight to Nairobi before our hop to Kilimanjaro. We should be home by noon on Tuesday.

These have been wonderful days with the 24-7 Prayer family. I will have to talk more about that later.

For now I just want to quote Byron who said that finding Barbara at the international food fest on Thursday night was like "chocolate covered joy." Amen to that!

All is well. I need to get some sleep now...

45!

(PS And Happy Birthday dear Nancy!)
