America

Okay, so I've been back from America for a few days now and I've only barely scratched the surface of going through the photos taken. Jet lag and general catching up with life are combining to make this a long-winded process but I thought it might be nice to make it clear that the TSA didn't detain me, I didn't suffer a fatal reaction to Black Friday-related pepper-spraying, and the lure of life as an illegal alien in the land of big cars, big distances, and big fascination with texting people while driving (seriously, everyone did that; stop it!) wasn't overpowering enough to prevent me leaving. But I'm looking forward to heading back next year. You've got a pretty nice country over there.

  1. nice to see you back safely. By the sounds of things you have plenty of material to keep you going for a good while.

  3. +Wendy Badman The game was great and an incredible experience. And cold. Very cold. I bought a throwback hooded sweatshirt for the extra warmth it afforded. Our American "arranger of things" was so cold – and the game was effectively over by then anyway – that we decided to spare him the pain of freezing through the final six minutes of the fourth quarter and left a touch early. Photos from the stadium/game are here for now – http://www.flickr.com/photos/neonbubble/sets/72157628273376737/detail/ – and I'll probably put a post up here on G+ at some point too with some details about the game once I've gone through the rest of the photos taken on the trip (still a long, long way to go yet).
