We're Home!

Tuesday morning I woke up at 2:30 am, stumbled downstairs (actually I took the elevator) in this hotel in Bucharest, Romania.

We had a flight at 6:05 am from Bucharest to Frankfurt, Germany.  We then waited a few hours at the Frankfurt airport, where we waited, receiving multiple texts announcing flight delays and gate changes. (It's a good think I had my phone with me.)

The flight from Frankfort to Newark, New Jersey was eight and a half hours long.  I slept through part of it, but not enough.  When we arrived in Newark we had to go through a series of lines, having our passports and bags checked, then going through customs and finally the security line.  By then, I was feeling the lack of sleep as well as the meds I had taken to try to sleep.

In Newark, we waited.  And waited.  And waited.  Our flight finally took off, four hours late.  Two hours after that we were finally home.  I tried to watch the season finale of "Justified" but slept through the whole thing.  I slept all night and here I am!

The journey home wasn't so much fun, but the trip itself was wonderful!  As soon as I have a chance to unpack my camera and find the proper cord, I will upload my photos and show you some highlights.  In the meantime another cup of coffee is in order!

Glad you're home safe and well. Been watching that part of the world and wondering how you've been getting on!
