international SMSing?

Is SMSing someone with a cell phone in, say, Greece as simple as it seems like it ought to be (i.e., I send a text to the person's phone number, including the country code), or are there weirdnesses between the systems?

Home again, home again, but no jiggidy jig

When last I posted, I was on Skopelos island in Greece, still in the midst of my vacation. A lot has happened since then, and I don't know quite where to start!

At this very moment, I'm having post-travel tired/blues, which isn't uncommon. After a big, eventful trip, getting home is both a relief and a disappointment, and shifting from the marked space of the vacation to the liminal state of travel and then into regular life can be jarring. This is not helped by jetlag, of course. But it is good to be home. I'm looking forward to sleeping in my very own bed.

So, I'm tired, and travel-weary, but it's good to be back, and I have baklava, so it's not all bad. Also, my fantastic roommates left some fresh wasabi rolls in the fridge for me, so, actually, it's mostly good, and will be better after I sleep.

I'm slowly catching up on email and LJ. I will, as always, try to read everything, but if there's something you particularly want me to be sure to see, you should point me that way. Also, there are lots of you I'd like to see soon, but I leave Friday for my next trip, and what with yesterday's fumble, I've lost a day in my already-short week, so I will have to take a rain check for at least some of you.
