Blogging from Barajas

I was beginning to think America didn't want me back.

It's been a wild ride just trying to get home for Christmas. We started by buying plane tickets, then train tickets, more plane tickets... To get from BCN to MAD to Chi-town to Indy (and then from Indy to Chi-town to Madrid to Ciudad Real and back to
BCN.)

There was supposed to be a strike for the airline to take us from Madrid to Chicago. Thankfully it was cancelled. There may or may not be bad storms in Chicago when we fly in. Let's hope not.

Sunday, I was settled in to work on my final paper for Phonology when we received a message about needing to be in Madrid three hours before our flight. This just was not possible with our connecting flight. I called the airline, and they said it was for security and couldn't really be sure how long it would take for us to get through lines.

So, instead of flying out Monday morning, we took a train Sunday night and arrived in Madrid bright and early this morning.

Then, the metro here was on strike with only minimal service. Super.

When we finally arrived at the airport, it looked like some wild ERASMUS students had a party there. Who knows...

Anyway, we are on a jet plane, but we'll be back again!

See you soon, Indy friends and family!
