Dazed in America

When I woke up this morning I didn't know where I was. For a split second, at least.

Oh, that's right, I'm back in Washington, DC.  And it is cold in America. The Internet says it is a crisp 53 degrees Fahrenheit out, but surely it must be colder than that.

The flight back from Fiji was non-eventful.  I didn't eat on the plane, but had a spicy chicken pizza and caesar salad at the Wolfgang Puck Express in Los Angeles.  Speaking of which, the plane arrived in Los Angeles nine hours before it left Fiji, at least according to local time.

I was adding up my travel days so far this year and realized I've already been on the road 67 days and we're only into the first week of April. That means I've been suffering from varying degrees of jet lag every day since the middle of January.

Not that I'm complaining.

I've been able to do some very meaningful work these last few months and the people I've been able to work with have been amazing and inspiring.  If every three month period could be as successful as the last three month period, the planet and future generations would be saved by the middle of this decade.
