Back from Nigeria

The Boulder Super Shuttle dropped us off at home at almost 2 a.m. this morning after a marathon 50 hour trip from Calabar, through Abuja, Amsterdam and Minneapolis (we ended up driving rather than flying back to the airport in Abuja for our return flight).

We're all exhausted but otherwise very happy. It was such a wonderful trip. Lori and the kids loved it. Lori admits that it certainly defied all her preconceived notions of Africa, and even for me there was so much that I found changed after 15 years of absence. I'll write more about it later, but for now I wanted to mention that was down for the past couple of weeks. The server had a maintenance reboot while I was gone and I hadn't left directions for re-launching the new CherryPy set-up I'd made for the site. I've restarted it now, and will look to add it to the startup scripts.

Next I'll address the backlog of comments.

It shouldn't last very long at all, but if you do have problems I've added a...
Hey mate,

It's good to have you back. I'm looking forward to reading your trip journal :)
