Egypt, part 7: jet to the lagged, etc.

I woke up this morning quite early. First at 4, then at 4:30, then finally at 5. The eyes were not gonna close again. Jet lag has me in her clutches, my body on a clock still 6 hours in the future. I came back to the states on Tuesday night with a vicious head cold that first showed up in Egypt but waited until I was up in the air on a plane to really bloom full force.

So chest cold, check. Jet lag, check. Welcome back indeed.

I returned to a season in full swing--most of the leaves already on the ground...the rest on fire in reds and yellows and orange in the branches. It's beautiful. I wasn't expecting just how beautiful it would be. I don't mind the pulling on of sweaters if it means such color.

I have so much to say about the rest of my trip in Egypt, including our trip to Dubai. Have no fear--I'm working on the updates. Hang tight. I'd also like to point out that tomorrow kicks off NaNoWrimo, and I'm going to do my own version of it where I write or rework/edit a poem for each day of the month of November. I'll post them here.

More soon!
