Late-night accounting

The day after tomorrow, we’ll fly from Reykjavik to NYC, returning to the States after 11 months abroad. I couldn’t sleep last night so I lay awake in our Reykjavik guesthouse trying to account for and remember the things we’ve done, the places we’ve visited and the experiences we’ve had. Here’s what I came up with:

3          Continents visited (Oceana, Asia, Europe)

5          Countries in which we’ve watched Homeland

4          Countries we’ve visited ruled by authoritarian regimes

4          Post-communist countries

7          Bicycle trips

17        Countries visited

12        Countries visited with universal health care (not America)

8          Pairs of shoes worn through (Me: 2; Sujata: 2; Boy: 2; Girl:2)

74        Blog posts posted (that’s just mine–Sujata not included)

10        Visitors from the States

10        Countries where I swam laps

5          Boxes sent back to America
