“Wheels Up” party

I have been invited by one of my new friends to a “Wheels Up” party this weekend. This is a new concept to me; when a visiting delegation completes its mission and leaves the country for home, it is customary for the regular in-country project staff to have a Wheels Up party, celebrating the takeoff (wheels up) of the plane that takes them back to wherever they came from.

After spending the last thirty-some years managing projects from Washngton, DC, and making four to six supervision and support missions to field projects a year, I wonder with some discomfort how many Wheels Up parties I have inspired.
