    Space tourist Anousheh Ansari’s blog offers uncommon insight into everyday life on the international space station through the eyes of an American businesswoman.
    Her 10-day adventure ended tonight when she touched down in a Soyuz vehicle on the steppes (草原) in Kazakhstan along with Russian cosmonaut Pavel Vinogradov and US astronaut Jeff Williams.
    “It is hard for me to write tonight,” she wrote Thursday in her last posting from space. “There are millions of thoughts going through my head.”
    The 40-year-old Iranian-born woman paid $20 million for her adventure. She was a last-minute substitute(代替者) for a Japanese businessman who failed a medical test for space flight.
    Although she has a master’s degree in engineering and made a fortune in the telecommunications(无线电通信) industry, Ansari’s blog entries have been free of tech-heavy jargon (术语), exhibiting an enthusiastic, chatty style.
    “Well my friends, I must admit keeping clean in space is not easy!” she wrote in the opening of one entry. And she wrote about the smell of space — at least the space inside the orbiting lab:“It was strange ... kind of like burned almond (杏仁) cookie.”
