everything after evacuation

Basically, after a stressful morning at the hotel with terrible stupid problems with our 'security', we got to the airport and sat around almost all day until we finally got on our completely unmarked charter plane to Barcelona. We got to Spain in the middle of the night and everything went smoothly from there. Our hotel was wonderful, we got checked in completely fine, and there was internet!
The next day, we spent in Barcelona, and it was amazing, but not long enough to see everything I wanted to. I guess I'll just have to go back!
The flight back home was really really long, and took us first to Zurich and then all the way to LAX. Then we went through immigration, to some questions about why I visited three countries in 6 days, and through customs, who noticed we'd been in Egypt and asked questions like 'were you scared?', and then we were home. The end.


  1. I'm really really really glad that you are home safely! =)

  2. Glad you are safe.
    (Who taught you to write, "The End"?)
    Any idea on when you will be able to go back or at this point are you just enjoying a break from it all?

  3. Well, my program in Egypt was officially cancelled when the state department decided to evacuate all the Americans, so I won't be able to go back and study in Egypt this semester at all. As for going back sometime in the future, I don't really know anymore... (And while I'm glad to be home, I just had my break from it all, and really wasn't expecting to be back home after just six days!)
