I am so exhausted my brain cells should be legally restrained from getting within a 10-mile radius of my blog but since several of you were worried that we were caught in the storm that hit Karachi, I wanted to let everyone know that we've been waiting out the storm (which at some point before it hit the country of Oman I believe was a category 4 cyclone) here in Dubai. Many cancelled flights and a bucket full of falafels later we finally left for Karachi this morning but just as we were about to touch down the storm gave the pilot no choice but to abort the landing attempt and bring us back to Dubai where it's safe and dry.
From the little I could tell from the plane, Karachi did look pretty badly flooded.
Hope everyone is OK there.
Both Geoff and I are extremely exhausted from several days of camping out at airport lounges and the airport hotel but I guess overall we are just lucky to both be safe.
On the bright side I did find out how I look with 5 sleepless nights worth of under eye circles.
