... no, not what you're thinking. [Well, not sure what you're thinking ...]
The other day, driving out to that great Thai place off Charleston Hwy, I get an IM on the mobile from my buddy Mitch. Well, nothing great there. Except he's sitting somewhere over the Atlantic in a business class seat (attached to a Lufthansa airliner), wondering when they started offering internet connectivity in the air (apparently, since 2003), on his way to the Sudan.
Yep, you read that right. He's doing some stuff for the State Department there. Fresh out of college (and freshly wed too!). The kid's going places, I tell ya. Literally. :-)
Anyway, he's a great writer, so follow along at Egyptguy.
[And Mitchum, I figure the visitor from Khartoum on this blog earlier today was you ... so here's to you friend. Khuda hafiz!]
[Oh yeah, if you read his last journal entries you'll figure out the title of this post ... ]
