Home safe-and-sound

We got home about 01:00am Friday morning. Required two taxis.

Some of us are still jet-lagged, but others are fine so far. I took Deric out for a haircut already.

That's it. There will be more pictures posted to existing posts over the next few days or weeks.

Across the Pacific over Japan and the Aleutians

Boring route across the Pacific - nowhere near the North Pole.

We finally got on the almost-brand-new 777-200. Amusingly, the electronics on the maybe-two-week-old aircraft were already flaky. One of the video screens on our bank of seats was prone to locking up. The Map feature wasn't turned on. And the one of our electrical outlets was overly fussy - we had to swap our power cords between seats to keep everything working. Garbage electronics on those planes.

After a month in unwashed Asia, in turns out that 'The Smelliest Man In The World' was on the flight from T.O. to Halifax sitting in the row in front of us. Charming...
