I had planned to get straight back to writing upon my return to New York, but I have completely under-estimated the brutal, brain-attacking, energy-sapping, total mind and body shut down that is readjustment to life in the Northern hemisphere. Our return to NYC involved a one-hour flight from Melbourne to Sydney, a 13-hour flight from Sydney to LA, a 2-hour wait in LAX, and finally a 5-hour flight from LAX to NYC. The guy sitting next to me does this trip once a month for work. Sweet jesus. I wouldn’t wish this feeling on my worst enemy. And I happened to be randomly selected for intense security searches in both Sydney and LAX airports. And I was shouted at by a customs officer for opening my carry-on bag to remove my sneakers because according to his logic, I could have been taking out a weapon. Ooooookay. America and airports do not mix. Hopefully tonight I will be able to sleep more than 2 1/2 hours. Cha Cha Charming updates will resume (more frequently) on Monday.
