Next Stop: Home

We’re still working on the words and images from our travels in China, so the blog is time-warping back to the USA for a while.

Homeward bound in Seattle

On June 5, 2012, we hopped from Beijing to Seattle to Minneapolis to Milwaukee (aka home). Actually, hopping would have been nice- it sometimes seemed that we were crawling. But we made it.

Twenty-six hours after the hotel room door closed behind us in Beijing, we ended our journey with a homecoming feast in New Berlin. Thanks to my brother Paul for snapping this pic of the festivities.

Catching up with family will occupy the next week: Karen is staying with her dad and his wife Dolores, while I’m staying with my mom (Dad is out of town for work). Thanks to our parents for putting up with us for a while!

      We will continue to blog. Our past travels are still behind by two months, we’ll have plenty to say while in MKE and we may hit the road again in the fall. Stay tuned!

    Wow. Welcome home. Good luck adjusting to the local culture. Don’t be afraid to eat the local food, but sometimes the Milwaukee water can be risky!
