I made it to Germany. It is 9:30 in the morning which would make it 3:30 am back in Ottawa. I guess I better not call anyone to say that I made it OK.
The flight was very good. Executive Class is definately the lap of luxury. I was going to describe what it was like but I don't think words can do it justice. My main course from my four course meal read like this, "Grilled Chicken Breast enhanced by Thai Red Curry Sauce, presented with steamed Bok Choy, Fried Rice with Egg and braised Parslied Carrot slices." It was yummy. Also, in honour of Shannon I had a lovely glass of port with my apperitif of cheese and fruit. I did manage to get an hour of two of sleep on the plane so hopefully that will hold me over until tonight. I spend the rest of the time watching TV. They had an episode of CSI but I had already seen it. Instead I watched a Discovery channel show about building a new bridge in the San Francisco Bay. For the movie I picked Sideways. It was slightly artsy but quite poignant (did I use that word correctly?).
Weather wise it is around 0 and snowy. There is snow around but no where near as much as Ottawa has.
