How many of you remember Carlos Carrion? His id on xanga was xccrider, for sometime it was also soltero_alma. He was one of the most congenial and cordial gentleman of xanga. He would always stop by my page and say something that would boost my ego.
Well, he came to visit me form California. SO sweet, no? He came in on Wednesday. His flight out of CA got delayed by over an hour, and he lost his connection to Chicago from Phoenix and from Chicago to Quincy. Consequently, he arrived at 9:30 in the night instead of 4:50 the original time!! So sad. Felt horrible for him that he had traveled THE ENTIRE day, traveling…. from 6:30 am to 9:30 pm. But M and I were so happy that he made it here finally and it has been such a fabulous visit with him.
Quincy is a small town, and not much to talk about, except the beautiful old homes on Main street and the River Mississippi. Yesterday gave him a little tour of the place and introduced him to the family last night. We had a great time with everyone at the dinner. I hope Carlos wasn’t bored with Saadia and Sayeed chatting and telling all the different stories of their kids and this town.
Here are a few pictures from his visit. Too bad that he has to leave tomorrow early morning. I hope he returns soon. On the way to the airport, I saw the Blood Moon. Stopped on the highway and took some photos.
This was such a welcoming site for me, perfect to welcome a dear friend. Here are some more pictures from along the River Mississippi, and at home last night.
May be I will have some more pictures in another day or two.
