….apart from the fact that it’s very cold compared to Mexico City!
It was a good flight, though 10-11 hours in the same little seat is a bit arduous, having said that it wasn’t quite as little as I was upgraded: on British Airways that doesn’t, sadly, mean to Business Class, as it does on many of the airlines I fly with. It means to World Traveller Plus – but, the seats are wider, the seats recline more (with leg support) and the gap between rows is bigger…. so it was fine! I’m grateful for small mercies when flying, so it’s a blessing.
As sleep doesn’t come easily to me on planes, it gave me lots of time to think back over all the wonderful things that happened in Mexico, as well as watch a totally depressing film! I must have dropped off to sleep at some point, as I have no idea how it ended…. 🙁
I’d be dishonest if I said I wasn’t totally knackered when I finally got home, so today was a ‘slow’ day, and though they’re better than they were, I think the gruelling nature of a whole day (almost) travelling has got to my poor old knees today. I’m sure they’ll be back to the ‘end of Mexico’ best tomorrow.
Loads of mail to catch up with – just boring stuff – but it is nice to be home, though I could quite happily have stayed in Mexico for longer. Next up – Seaford, East Sussex: a lovely church that I was at just 3 months ago Seaford – 23,500 population, and Mexico City 37,000,000 – are just a wee bit different! Straight from Seaford, I go on Monday 10th to Sweden: spending a few days with more wonderful friends Stojan & Soila Gajicki, in the lovely home overlooking a beautiful lake. A ‘tough’ few days, having saunas, eating barbecued sausages IN the sauna, and drinking a beer or…..?! Looking forward to a weekend of ministry in Orebro, sort of in the middle-south of Sweden, with great friends Vello & Ingalill Vaim, and then a week of ministry primarily – I think – to asylum seekers and illegal immigrants seeking asylum, in the south west of Sweden, Boras, again with great friends Bjorn & Maria Isacsson.
