I sat next to 'Chad from Kansas' on the plane. He offered me Hot Tamales, quoted Anchorman multiple times, is an avid swimmer (future Olympian**), and sings in a band. :) He was fun -- & it was his first time overseas -- so his excitement was ridiculously contagious. Hi Chad.
Welp, I left at 7:30pm on Thursday evening. My cousin, Cara, brought me to the airport -- which seemed fitting since we traveled through numerous airports together just last week. Thanks yo!!
