In a few minutes, I’ll be leaving for the airport for our annual Christmas family trip, albeit a few short. For the first time, Jerry and Erik will not be traveling with our family for our Christmas trip, because of business obligations (and Erik is interviewing at several medical schools!). Our trip will take us to Buenos Aires in Argentina, and we are all very excited, as we are meeting our good friends, Paul and Paula Scharff, who are there already (Paula’s family lives in Buenos Aires), but before I go, I’d like to take a few minutes to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with health, happiness, and prosperity. I will be sure to sample a lot of great food, and take a million pictures to share with you when I get back. Until then, Feliz Navidad and Happy New Year!
P.S. Don’t forget to tune in to “All Things Considered” on Christmas Day on your NPR station!
