It's a long road home.
Over the course of five days last weekend, we made our way from Iran to Turkey to Germany to the United States by two trains, a boat, two planes and a car — arriving home in time to spend Thanksgiving with family.
And for this, we are thankful.
Thanksgiving, the quintessential American holiday. Also our personal favorite. Whereas Christmas for many is about presents, Thanksgiving for us is about presence. The focus: food and family.
As you see from the panorama below, today's Thanksgiving meal was an exceptional feast of roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie — just to name a few. A culinary combination that ranks as one of our all-time favorite meals.
So with full stomachs and happy hearts, we wish all our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving!
