10 hours on the flight from JFK, now a 5 hour wait until the connector to Damascas. It’s going to be a brutal rest of the day.

I wish I could say the flight was uneventful, but alas there was a medical emergency on board and they woke everyone up looking for a doctor. Then instead of landing on time we got waived off at the last minute to take another pass before landing.

After our long wait here it will be 2 hours in the air and another 2 hours on the ground to get to the first hotel. I know soon I will be hurting very badly. Perhaps I’ll get a little more sleep on this next flight.
