Location: Toronto, Canada


Well I'm back in Canada now, in Toronto though. Having a bit of recovering time as i seem to have caught Midori's cold (booooo!). It's not bad, but it's nice ot be able to sleep without a fan on and without wondering if anything is crawling on you!

We had an interesting flight back. We left San Jose late and that meant that our 1hr layover was gonna be tight. We were scheduled to board our next plane at 9pm... were were in the air landing at 9pm. Eventually we got off but because its the states we had to claim and recheck our bags then go through customs and then security and get to our gate. I'm not even sure how we did it. Our flight was scheduled to leave at 9:45pm (after they held it 15min). I got held up at security and bitched out by the lady for no reason so i just stood there and let her feel me up until she'd had her fun and let us leave. We ended up running the length of the airport and our bags and me with no shoes on, just in time to be let on the plane. WHEW!

I didn't get up to much in San Jose. Mainly because i spent 1/2 of the time there I had in the police station. Nothing major but I got robbed int eh downtown in the middle of the day. So ya they got my wallet and my camera and all of my memory cards. I was super upset about losing my pictures. I didn't really care about the rest, just i lost all of my pictures from Costa Rica, which makes me sad. I will have to get a new camera which sucks and hopefully the insurance will cover it but ya the pictures is what is the worst.

I've been back a couple days but am just trying to rest and shake the cold, eat properly and get some good sleep. The boys have been busy but i've gotten to see them a bit. Tomorrow we're going out for dinner so that will be nice, my first homemade meal in 7weeks! I'm excited!

That's all for now, until next time i flee the country!
