      So now we are packing and preparing for our journey tomorrow. We need to reach San Jose airport by lunch time. It is hopefully a 2 hour journey if the road is not washed out by rain, but Alex has arranged for Kevin to take us and leave very early so we can birdwatch on the way!

Mom and I were among the 15 Business Class passengers aboard the inaugural IAD-SJO flight.
