Back in Baghdad

We’ve arrived. Thank goodness! It feels so good to be back. Its humid, damp, not exactly cold. Actually pretty warm compared to Afghanistan.

The flights were long and I couldn’t sleep. Probably because of some amount of exictment over getting back to Curtis. Also, might be due to the fact that we were jammed into the back of the airplane like sardines, with all our gear (body armor, helmets, bags, etc.) strapped to us.

Pictured is us in the back of a C-130 preparing for flight. We didn’t have our helmets on…shame on us! We’re rebels…um, not really, about as rebel as I get is jay walking. We were just chilling inside the plane for quite a while. Apparently, the pilot wanted to pass out candy. Nice timing I wanted to comment.

    Hey girl, glad to hear you finally made your way back to Iraq and Curtis, give him a big hug. Miss you, drop me a line when you get a chance.
    As always. Love you.

    Glad you got back to Baggers finally. Say hello to the old haunts for me, especially Mahmoud the Pie Guy (I’m sure he still dreams of me…)

    Take care while you’re there and enjoy your time with Curtis :)
