I managed to get out of bed this morning in time for an early hike before work. It’s one of those few beautiful weeks we see every spring in Phoenix. The sun is up early enough to start a hike at 5:30 am, but it’s not too hot outside. Today was gorgeous. There was no discernible wind, and yet the air was clear. The brown cloud that normally covers the city during the week was nowhere to be seen.
In addition to adding new content, I’m constantly tweaking the layout of this blog. This morning, on a whim, I reset the default blog theme, essentially casting aside a year’s worth of customizations. Over the next several days, you’ll see more changes than usual.

Long story short, I’m home.
In the middle of Þingvellir National Park in Iceland, and I suddenly have an Internet connection again. I thought I’d pop my head up before I get back to Reykjavik and it doesn’t work again. I’m safe and well. More to follow when able.
I took a day trip today to Nogales, a city that straddles the Arizona-Mexico border, and I went on the other side of the fence for a couple hours to have a look around.
I just found out that the reason this train is an hour behind schedule is because the train hit and killed an old man on a bicycle at a level crossing just outside of Prague.
I’m now on the train towards Innsbruck, less than two hours away from Salzburg. It is 11:45 a.m.
