Loc: York, England
Tomorrow, Friday - travel by train to Manchester Airport where I stay overnight

Saturday - flight to Chicago, then to Dallas/Fort Worth, then to Albuquerque.

Sunday - recover from jetlag, link up with friends arriving in the evening, travel to Santa Fe in hired car.

Monday - meet up with people I met some years ago at the Ring in Seattle, then to Strauss's Arabella.

Tuesday to Thursday: more operas - Rossini's Maometto II, Szymanowski's King Roger, plus exploring the area (I've never been to New Mexico before but my friends know all about it).

Friday - jetlagged back to York via Chicago and Manchester.

Should be interesting.

Wow. And exhausting, especially toward the end. I thought jet lag happened only when you're traveling west to east.

Try to find a little time to sightsee around Santa Fe...it is a fascinating place, and one of the earlier western settlements....Also a great artist mecca...George O'Keefe used to hang out there...

There used to be a mesa you could climb to reach a Native American pueblo...but that was when I was a teenager....I think they are all hanging out selling blankets around town now.

And I don't imagine climbing a mesa would fit into your schedule anyway.

I've always found the East-West lag worse...

Kay, you're lagging backwards. wink

I never even heard of those two operas. Andrew, when you're back, tell us whether they were worth so long a trip.

C'mon, Andrew, we know you're back. How were the two kings?
