I'm traveling, so posting has been nonexistent for a while.

But people live here, laugh here, have fun with friends here.
The news is filled with terror attacks, monkey attacks on city assistant mayors, more terror attacks, cricket, more terror attacks, Bobby Jindal, and more terror attacks.
Time to start thinking about coming home.
