I left New Zealand at noon on June 16th. After 30-something hours of traveling I arrived safely in D.C. at 11pm June 16th. Time travel is exhausting. Well worth it though, today Annie woke me up. She couldn’t quite figure out why I wasn’t stuck inside the computer like normal. She kept alternating between saying “dee” (Dani) and giving me big hugs. Despite being a bit overwhelmed by the traffic and large amounts of fast food, its nice to be home.
