I’m holed up in Manhattan, surrounded by a six suitcases and sleeping people, waiting for coffee and Micron’s final pre-Ireland vet appointment – mandatory de-worming must take place within three days of travel. Yesterday was the best. In thirty-eight hours we’ll be on a plane to Dublin.
Last week, we U-Hauled our things from NorCal to my storage unit in LA, stopping at Matt‘s place for a couple of days. I shipped some art pieces to collectors, met Courtenay at my favorite vegan place, Annah and Josh had a beautiful wedding at the Griffith Observatory, we almost went to Magic Mountain, but were so exhausted from the weeks of packing and planning that we went to a Thai spa, instead. The next day, there was a little goodbye brunch, with free-flowing mimosas and vodka tonics, iced coffee, crepes made fresh by Gašper, fruit, lots of smoked salmon and more cheese than anyone could have possibly anticipated. And puppies! It was a pleasure to catch up with some of the friends I’ve been missing during my sabbatical, all in one place.
Now, photos for you, coffee for me. If you’re just joining us, here are all the Operation I posts, so far.
