I surprised my family in Minnesota for Christmas! It was great fun. :)
Now I'm trying to stay warm when it's more than a hundred degrees colder here than it is in Pointe Noire, my ship home. That's cold, friends. Really, really cold.
Just wanted to let you know I am still alive, though a bit chilly, and will return to regular posting after my return to the ship (and regular internet access!) in mid-January.
Happy New Year!
