Eagerly anticipated arrival tomorrow morning

Younger daughter returns to JFK tomorrow morning at 7am after spending five months in Asia.  Four months were based in Beijing but with class program sponsored trips to Kunming and Yunnan Provinces and independent trips with her classmates or once on her own during weekends and on spring break to Xi'an, Shanghai, Guilin, Chengdu, Leshan, Jinshanling, and Quigdao  She then spent the next three weeks with college friends in New Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, and Amrit Sar, in India and five days of that time in Bangkok as well.  The latest two weeks have not been well documented so we will learn more soon.

What a trip, and what a traveler she has become.  There has been the sense that she has enjoyed it all immensely, but here that has been combined with occasional normal bits of parental anxiety.  We look forward to seeing her, and really seeing a somewhat changed, more experienced and more confident person, and adjusting to those changes as we learn more about her now .

There have been changes here as well that she is unaware of but which she will unfortunately realize soon.  Over time, you can't hide health issues.

Excitement and worry, those two can keep one up at night.
