The long wait

We made it back. Wet. Bites all over. Food poisoning didn’t last more than a day. Pilot was near blind in one eye, but recovered following medical treatment. Some maps put away now, others to be studied anew. Notes to be written up. Much work waiting.

The photo is from the film of the St Ex novel Night Flight. The film is unavailable I believe. I’ve never seen it. The book is very good. About some less lucky in their return journey.
