The car picks me up at noon, kicking off six days of long travel from Cotuit to Bangalore and back again on Friday. I haven’t thought about packing yet, but intend to get by with a single duffel bag and a backpack jammed full of ThinkPad, headphones, iPod (into Stoner Metal this month, so lots of Fu Manchu and Queens of the Stone Age) books (No Country for Old Men, Cormac McCarthy and maybe the new Pynchon), passport, sleeping pills, etc. etc. etc.
Cell phone will work, but please do the math before dialing. I get whaled on at 3 am in Beijing by well-meaning people who think it is 3 pm. And yes, I leave the phone on.
I’m planning on Raleigh the week after this.
