Long flight is over.

The first and second legs of our flight are in the can.
I'm writing this from the Abu Dhabi airport in the United Arab Emirates while we're waiting for our luggage. We just endured the long flight from Chicago of 13 hours. I have what we Sparks call "the gift." It is the ability to sleep anywhere for any period of time in pretty much any circumstances and feel rested afterward. It is at times like these that I am especially thankful for it. Here's the description of my flight: after finally taking off, I watched a movie (and ate during it), slept 8 hours, and watched another movie (eating during it, too). So I feel pretty good. They even served Pepsi on the plane!

The counter scene as we try to figure
out what happened to our bags. 

Where's the luggage? 

It's 9:45 pm here (8 hours ahead of home). We've got a long layover, so I guess we'll eat (something really cool I'm sure) and  then sleep some more!
Well, something seems to have happened to our bags. Gotta go figure it
Thanks for continuing to pray for us the next 2 1/2 weeks.
UPDATE: our checked bags  are apparently headed to Kathmandu. I guess we'll see.  We just ate butter chicken over biryani rice. Well, Madison and I did. Jesse got Burger King. I really don't know what to say about that.

Now it's time for sleep. It's 1am here. We board at 8am. Next stop: Katmandu, Nepal.
