May 22, 2007 - Enroute to Galapagos

Holy Mary, Mother of God. 8 knots! After days, which felt like weeks, of doing less than 4 knots, we're flying along at 8 knots. Haulin' the mail, as Sten would say.

Sten just pointed out that we're not quite as far west as Chicago. Isn't that unbelievable? We've been heading west since March and we're not even on a parallel with Chicago yet.

May in Chicago, possibly the best month of the year. The whole city blossoms. Restaurants and bars throw open their floor to ceiling windows to let in the warm breezes. What I wouldn't give to be hanging out with Deb and Kate right now having a few drinks and many laughs.
