I'm nicely tired and winding down. I managed to not collect any disgusting blood bruises while I was there but, sure enough, when I tried to open the back door to my building, it hit the back of my hand and BAM - giant dark purple splotch right there. Oh well.
It's not at all cold here which is kind of nice.
Tonight I will catch up on some TiVo and knit a bit before, probably, going to bed really early. Right now I'm going to empty my suitcase into the dirty clothes hamper.
I just got the hotel/restaurant bill. The entire trip for both of us, hotel, elegant meals, drinks, airfare, scooter and misc (cabs, incidentals) came out to $3,800. We could have done it for a whole lot less but I'm sure glad we didn't. My brother enjoyed and appreciated all the luxury and grandeur as much as I did. And, my estimate which is the cash I set aside for it, was $4,000. So, we're all good!
