So far this week, I have rescued an endangered sea otter, been on a yacht with lots of drunk strangers, and I was running late to class (or was it a flight) but I was in the wrong building and had no idea where to go.
Yes, I have really weird dreams when I travel. Maybe it’s waking up in the middle of the night, not knowing where I am for a few seconds, then falling back asleep.
I dream in color and mostly in English, but I break out the Spanish when I get angry and curse, like I did when I found myself in the wrong building again, sweating and out of breath, even more late for my class or flight.
Vacations are nice, but I miss my bed, waking up in my room, in that familiar morning light
not remembering a thing.
While not sleeping, here is the supply chain and logistics news that caught my attention this week:

Have a happy weekend!
