Day 1. Flight to Istanbul (yup, to Turkey) for 3 hours, and another 3 hours stuck in the airport enjoying a not very nice turkish coffee. I was concerned it was going to be a long wait, but going through security took a long time. They had a lot of problems finding my ESTA application and I had to turn on my roaming. Great.
After another 12 hours flying, we got Chicago where a driver was waiting to drop us off at home, finally, around 22h. It was a 28-hours-trip.
I have to say I was afraid of Turkish Airlines, but they scored points with us after a few amazing meals and good manners. Glad I got the next flight with them.
There was a party right next to home but I couldn’t even open my eyes so everything I did that day was going to sleep. The next days were much better, stay tuned!
I decided to share this old project that I found in my computer. It was published in the App Store two years ago and it reached almost 10k downloads in the few months it was alive. It got some attention in the media, and I even came to the radio for an interview. Absolutely worth it and fun, but it’s a pity I didn’t have time to maintain the project.
While talking about Oklahoma City tornado, Rachel showed me this amazing picture from 1966, when a swarm of tornadoes occurred near her town, in Elkhart, IN. It seems there is some myth about the story around this photo (people thought they were seeing two tornadoes at the same time and they called them 'The Twins'), but anyway it’s an awesome photo.
