1>Day 7: Ohio - Pennsylvania - New York

Last Day

A nice leisurely morning -- leisurely enough to hit the stunning collection at the Oberlin collection. It's amazing: a really good collection, particularly of 15-18th century European art. Brilliant.

We dropped by Erie, NY to see the USS Brig Niagra, once commanded by Janet's great great great great great grandfather. No doubt using goat skins herded by my great great great great great great grandfather, or something like that. Then back to Ithaca; I'm currently writing as Janet's a year.

We're running a bit later than planned: it's going to be about 7pm by the time we're back in Ithaca, and we'd been hoping for a bit earlier. Still, that's time to drop off our stuff and head down to Felica's by ten or so for a drink with the crew. The skies are looking on the dark and ominous side: so far, we haven't had to put the roof up once because of rain, which is an amazing record for a seven day trip -- particularly when you consider that parts of Kansas City, for example, were flooded under *two feet* of water three days before we got there. We'll see if our luck holds out in New York.

This last three hours across New York is just about as exhausting as Kansas, although it's all emotional: it's that "we're home!" feeling... but we're not, yet. But getting there.

Tomorrow I'm off to Aarhus, Denmark for a conference, then back via my big family BBQ in Lydbrook next weekend. Then it's classes and finishing up CHI papers for two weeks. Crazy times.
