The church where the ceremony was held had this really interesting aperture.

More importantly, the wedding was gorgeous and elegant, and two friends of ours are now starting a trip of their own, including a Jamaica honeymoon, and hopefully visits back and forth from anywhere we all end up. I borrowed these pictures from my boyfriend and date for the event, Steven.

The weather was in the mid to upper 50’s there (and in the upper 90’s to 100’s when we got back to Phoenix!), the Wichita wind was high, the Rockies were stunning as always.

We stayed at the Hotel at Old Town, which already has an impressive website (including virtual tours, slideshows, etc.), to I’m going to link you there and just show you my favorite detail, as well as a clue to how it’s made:

Finally, mad props to United. Yes, I may still complain about the delay and Denver’s ad crazy WiFi. But I’m a pilot’s daughter, and a good preflight is ESSENTIAL. Our pilots on Sunday caught a problem on the ground, while the flight crew kept us informed and the airline set us up with a new plane and got us on our way again. Here’s to safety checks, hydraulic pumps, and to making it home, safe.

And that’s it for the moment – Mexico and Wichita in the same week, and the meantime, everything here kept going, full steam, so I’m back to going full blast in Phoenix…

Travel is not limited to the new & exciting – sometimes it’s returning to a place that’s familiar. As the White Stripes song says, I’m going to Wichita this weekend, for a wedding.

I’ve had family here all my life, and some of my earliest memories are of playing in my Grandma’s garden and my Grandpa’s workshop, and their little blue house on Sheridan. Time’s passed, many of us are in new places, and the paint has faded and peeled. Still the city itself doesn’t seem to change significantly, a plains city riding the business winds of the airlines providing much of Wichita’s industry base.

Anyway not so many picture/story opportunities yet, mostly running around with flights and rental cars and hotels and trying to get assignments and grading done in between, but I’ll give you what I’ve got so far, from the airport
