Yes, we arrived back in El Dorado Hills about noon today. Lisa and I had decided that it would be the better part of valor to spend one more hotel night in San Jose, rather than make the three hour trip home last night.
We checked into the Wyndom Hotel after picking up my car at our friend Cheryl's house. I'd parked it in her garage so it was well protected during our adventure. The British Airways flight from Tel Aviv to Heathrow was just over 5 ½ hours. Then we had almost a five hour layover in London, where I ate yummy fish and chips with malt vinegar and tartar sauce. The direct flight from London to San Jose was 11 hours. By the time we arrived in San Jose, went through customs, Uber-ed to Cheryl's house and drove to the hotel I was really exhausted so I took a shower and went straight to bed at 7:30 and slept until 6 this morning!

I still have lots more to share about various sites we visited during our two-week trip, but, for now I'm glad to be home safe and sound.
