We're Leaving On A Jet Plane - Don't Know When I'll Have Internet Again

This is my last post from the United States of America. In less than 8 hours we'll be boarding our first of two planes and heading to our new home in Chennai, India. It has been a fun summer seeing family and a few friends, but we're very excited to move on to our new adventure.

The flight time to Chennai is approximately 21 hours... an 8 hour flight to Frankfurt, followed by a 4 hour layover, and ending with a 9.5 hour flight to Chennai. Total mileage flown from Virginia is 8814 miles.

We're arriving in India late Sunday night, and will hopefully clear customs swiftly and easily. I don't know when I'll have the chance to get onto e-mail, write about our travels, and begin documenting our tales - hopefully sooner than later! The next time you hear from me, it'll be from the other side of the world. Literally.

Until then... Pottu Varan (goodbye in Tamil).

Jill - Safe passage for you and your family. Update us on your adventure when you get a chance. When your stuff arrives get that sewing machine set up because I'm going to have some more sewing tutorials and I want you to join in!!! We're going to miss you.

Hey Jill!! Nice to meet you, too. I read some of your blog and am mesmerized! Your family is beautiful and I look forward to keeping in touch with you.
P.S. My business partner is Jack. It's the highlight of my day to call and say, "Hey Jack, It's Jill." But I am weirdly amused by small things like that.
