With Overseas Adventure Travel we toured

To avoid taking the laptop, I bought four gigs of memory chips for the camera. I took over 2600 pictures. Fear not, I've winnowed them to a few overall Highlight Pictures and some highlights for each leg, as listed on the left.

Nine flights:

At least a half-mile walk from plane to customs area. Too tired, we hopped a taxi to our hotel rather than await the courtesy shuttle at 1AM. Good thing too, because the hotel immediately shipped us off to another hotel. In the morning I was able to convince them that for our inconvenience they should at least buy us breakfast. Courtesy van to ariport, US Airways to Pittsburgh. Ellyn picked us up. We were very glad to once more see home.
