Re-entry Is a Bitch

After about 28 hours of travel time, we got back home late Friday night, where I got many smooches from both David and Tuck. I had Saturday to recuperate and am back on at work this afternoon - far too early, really, but the bills must continue to get paid.

At any rate, my mother and I had one final day in Delhi to do a last little bit of gift shopping and veg out before we left. I also got myself a haircut - complete with a full-on scalp massage - for a whopping R60/ ($1.20 US). Then we caught a 2AM flight to Zürich, where we had an 11-hour layover and nothing to keep us from hopping on the train into the city to see some of the sights.

There will be more photos of Zürich, too, but I just wanted to share a couple of photos before I toddle off to bed and try to get back on my regularly crazy schedule. First of all, this one is especially for Dave and Norma and really requires no explanation:

Of course, taking gratuitous butt shots of hunky Swiss cops wasn't my big reason for wanting to visit the city. What I really wanted was some of this:

Mine was made with goat cheese, and it was excellent.

Goat cheese fondue? No fair! Hope work isn't too taxing today.

Switzerland, land of my ancestors. Who knew they had such scrumptious... scenery.

Yum Yum (both photos)! You want in on a chance to win a nantucket ditty bagg? I've got a contest going and it's open another week. Welcome home!

Two of my all-time favorites: shapely men's buttocks AND goat cheese.

Now if you could just take a photo of a shapely man's buttocks covered in goat cheese, I'd be in nirvana.

Welcome home!

I'm not sure what to say "mmmm" the loudest to -- hunky manbutts or fondue. Heeeeeee. :D

Welcome back!

Welcome home! I don't know as I'd have been able to leave the nice law enforcement boys in Zurich, though. What a nice view of the city!
