New Niece of Vagabond Journey


My sister pumped out her second child a few days ago. Wade from Song of the Open Road has been made an uncle for the second time. Now I have to make a visit back to the USA to check out this new pile of stuff that will someday grow into a real human. As I figure that I am going to have to travel through the JFK porthole to get back to the Old World anyway, a visit to Rochester will not be too far out of my way. I like visiting my family, and would like two weeks to study and re-provision for the coming journey (I want to pick up some books hehehe). There are a lot of new little kids in my family and a visit is akin to going to an everyday, all over the place playground. I sneak the kids candy and let them dig through all of the odd things in my room. They yell scream and I teach them how to play hockey.

It is nice to make regular visits home. I want to keep myself in the family circle; I do not wish to voluntarily ostracize myself by never being home. Ten days home in January, two weeks home in May is a good way to travel.

I like it when the USA airline hubs are in my path.
