The US Air Force has a presence at Frankfurt airport :
And their airport shuttle train is neat:
We got to our last flight, on an Airbus 330, and the on-board
entertainment system was just booting:
Rachel REALLY liked the seat on this plane - it went almost completely
flat and was electrically controlled, as opposed to the manual seats we
had to endure on the earlier flights...
The last on the plane - the cats and dogs:
A couple last pictures of our plane:
And our route home:
About 9 hours later - our first glimpse on NYC - never have I been so
bad to see home!
The only negative of the flight home was my exuberance at finally being
able to eat a salad - having eaten nothing but boiled, cooked food for
the last two weeks I really wanted a salad or some fruit.
Unfortunately, the body was not quite prepared for this change in diet
and it took about 4 days for everything to, shall we say,
readjust. I also had a bit of a temperature for a day or so - not
sure if I picked up something at the end of the trip or if it was just
the stress of the trip. But as I write this, we're both fine,
back at work, and enjoying telling everyone the stories of our
adventure. Thanks for following along!
