The bus ride from New Orleans has already been unusually uncomfortable and filled with stress and delays. Still, it is best not to complain and be grateful that I was able to salvage some audiobooks from my recent iTunes explosion. I have been listening to Little Women and finding it rather touching.
All told, my time in New Orleans was colourful and enjoyable. I wish it had been possible to spend a few more days there, but it seems like a good idea to be at the Washington DC event right from the beginning.
I should be there in about seven hours, barring additional delays.
