How Carla and Heather see their world -- 698 miles apart.
That's so awesome that they visited for the weekend! How far did they travel? You're so impressive that you've kept in such good touch with so many of your friends. I do OK (with the aid of Facebook) with a few high school friends, and I talk to one or two college friends every year and I kept in touch with you and Hannah.... and that's about it. But I miss every one of my old friends.
They live in Brooklyn. So it was a short 2 hour flight, but a big deal that they came here. Now, it's our turn to visit them. I'd love to go near xmas.
