After a thirty hour journey (Atlanta - Newark - Birmingham - Copenhagen - Karlskrona), with a number of delays I'm finally home. With no luggage (my suitcase didn't arrive at the airport in Copenhagen), and freezing without my winter jacket, I took the train, a bus and finally a taxi.
Within half an hour I was asleep and remained in that state for almost twelve hours. When I woke up I wrote a nine-page paper "Critique of The American Dream in The Great Gatsby and An American Tragedy". In the late afternoon, my parents and my sons arrived, and it was really good to see them. I took a few hours off before I had to continue writing.
Yesterday morning I was supposed to fly to two seminars in Uppsala, but it was really foggy and the plane arriving from Arlanda wasn't able to land at Ronneby airport. The alternatives I had to choose between was being booked on another flight at 4 pm or going by bus to Stockholm, a 6-7 hour journey. I decided to stay and work in Karlskrona, preparing for the class I'm currently teaching. We're looking at blogs and css at the moment.
So there has been a few busy days... Hopefully it will get a bit less busy now. Today is Leo's birthday and I'm looking forward to cake (I'm sure he is too!), and tomorrow I'll have lunch with my colleague Maria. We're going to discuss my trip to the U.S. of course. I'll post more things about that later on.
