Home Again

Gretchen and I got back from DFDF and through Customs in time for a moderately late dinner last night. This was followed not too long after that by collapsing into bed.

We had a great time at the con. Everyone was very nice and understanding about our essentially complete lack of German (I had two years of German in college -- one standard, one translation techniques for reading articles written in the language -- but that was a *very* long time ago). And I only made a few gaffes resulting from my lack of comprehension, so things went reasonably well on that front.

But the con was wonderful! We had so much fun playing there and listening to all the other folks singing, whether in German or English. It was a great, relaxing experience.

Thanks so much to Sib and Smac for having us and to all the folks there for being so welcoming.
