well, As I sit in the airport in SLC it still feels extremely surreal that I'm really leaving today, and that tomorrow morning I will land in London--Heathrow. And then I will start a whirlwind tour of the Isles. Oh, but it is exciting. Yesterday I drove to Grandma's house and spent the night with her. We had Zupas for dinner. It was delicious. I had a tortilla soup and a turkey and cranberry pannini. It was so light, and yet very filling.
But now I am ready for my flights and hopefully it will all go down uneventfully. The line at security was quite long, but it moved quickly. I think that aiports are the only place where it is not only socially acceptable but encouraged to get undressed in a crowd. Airports are a world of their own. I will try to post during my tirp, but I make no promises.
