I returned from west Nepal recently and details of the trip are posted here.
Tomorrow I fly London-Costa Rica on the 1st direct flight to Liberia on the Pacific coast. My wife and 2 youngest are presently en route from JFK; small world. By the time I get to Playa Flamingo, which is full of American ex-pats, the mid-term election results should be coming in. In hindsight it looks like Obama was the best thing that ever happened to American conservatism in my lifetime. Yabbadabbadoo!
