I have a way-the-hell-too-early flight (read: 07h15) to Baltimore tomorrow. I spend about 24 hours in the DC area before hopping on a train to New York with my parents on Dec. 20. I’ll be busy nearly every minute, either working or visiting with friends, and then I’ll have an encore ride of the Hartford Chinatown bus (featured in my Master’s thesis) on Dec. 23, where I’ll be spending Christmas vacation with my assembled family.

A Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah, Solstice and New Year to all!

I’ll be back in Oakland on the evening of December 28.

Update: I forgot to ask. Anyone know of any good WiFi cafés in Manhattan? Preferably near Penn Station or Midtown? (If not, that’s ok.)
