At last, we began the final leg of our journey: the flight from Dubai to SFO. We were grateful for the chance to rest a little and shower at the hotel prior. We boarded the plane for the 16-hour flight home at about 8:45 AM. While we didn't get another business-class upgrade this time (that REALLY would have been ridiculous, right … but one can always hope), the Emirates 777-300 aircraft was spacious even in economy class compared to other carriers we have flown. Dr. Randy commented on the length of the day today for us – 35 hours total – making it an extra long (and well-deserved) day of rest for the team! We leave behind many new friends, and have many new fond memories. God is good!
