Back in the USA:

I'm in Miami right now peepz. I might see if I can upload a few pictures and post them here. I have 30 minutes I can use. By then it should be time for me to check in for my flight to Raleigh. It boards in about an hour I think and leaves at 8:31, so in pretty much two hours I'll be on another damn plane, my third for the day. The flight didn't take all that long and was pretty decent. We left at 10:20BST (Brazilian Standard Time) and landed in Miami at 5:24PMEST. So an 8 hour flight. Should have taken around 8 1/2 I think was the estimated time.
Anyway it was good. I have no baggage but will explain all that later. I made it through customs with zero problems. Guy took my sheet and was all "okay" and I said "is that it?" He said "yup". I was expecting a damn full body search so I was confused. The guy in front of me had to get searched though so I'm glad I wasn't the first to pass through customs gate 2.
So I'm just waiting now. Let's see what pictures I can get for you guys.

Okay that's it, I'm almost out of time (only paid for thirty minutes). I have a ton of pictures to post and about 25 pages of a little "travel journal" Word document I've been keeping. Stay tuned for more because I'll have it updated quite a bit in the near future. I will be home in about 5 hours (where apparently I have a new bed waiting for me). Okay bye.
