We’re all packed, waiting for breakfast and a taxi that should be here in 20 minutes. We are reversing our outbound journey: Kathmandu to Istanbul to Chicago (where Tim and, temporarily, Emily will stop) to Seattle. It’s Monday morning now and will be Monday night when I get to Seattle after around 25 hours in the air.
That’s the plan, and hopefully Turkish has their act together on this end to turn the inbound morning flight around and get us out on time. We only have an hour layover in Istabul, so a late departure here means missing the daily flight to Chicago and spending a day there. The last such flights have made it, though, so we are hopeful.
After this, we shall have no more NCELL access, so this will probably be the last post until we arrive in Chicago.
