Back in one piece....
....but I feel like death warmed up. The final leg from Singapore to Brisbane was terrible. Felt horribly queazy for a while there, sick enough not to eat anything (lest there be an embarrassing scene with sick bags), and I just know that the jetlag is going to be horrendous. Oh, well. Just as long as it's coming tomorrow and I'm not nodding off at the graduation ceremony.

I should also mentioned here that I did send postcards (most of them I sent two, three days before I left Rome for Dubai).....whether or not they'll arrive at their destination is a different matter entirely. I'm told the Italian postal system is notoriously faulty.

I will probably post the first chunk of pictures a bit later. Looking at the photos on my camera, I kind of wish I had smuggled Judi in my luggage or at least nicked her amazing camera to take photos. That said, a lot of museums and churches did not allow photography (and rightfully so, for the preservation of artwork like frescoes), but I still got a fair few.

All that coming soon....

The fact that there is something called the Italian postal system is a step up over the last time I knew anything about it - I think there's still a postcard in the mail from when my cousin and her husband were there 18 months ago.

I'd've been more than happy to come help, dearest, you know that.

Sorry to bug your jetlagged self, but what's the game plan for Monday?

Well, I'm going to try and be on campus by 11:30-12:00 (have a few things to do prior to registration). I'm not entirely sure what the seating arrangements are, but it seems to be a 'first come first served' basis. My parents will probably come at about 1:00, and Anjuli I'm not so sure about. I will have my phone with me though, so if anything comes up, I can be in touch.
