Waiting and waiting…

Posted: July 17, 2007 in Blog

Coming to you live from the airport in Amsterdam. Flying in over the country you could see the beautiful, lush landscape and this airport is incredible. Very cosmopolitan and efficient. But KLM and I aren’t getting along too well right now. They’ve delayed my connecting flight to Entebbe twice, with, of course, no explanation.

…Though the fact that the guy next to me in the internet cafe here just started blaring the Bloodhound Gang brightened my day.

Anyway, I should be arriving into Entebbe airport about 1 a.m. local time. Not a great start, but it’s all part of the adventure.

The flight from Toronto went smoothly, though it was slightly unsettling to be sitting next to a man who crossed himself and began reciting prayers as the plane prepared for lift-off. He and I really bonded later in the flight when he dropped a suitcase on my head from the overhead storage. But one mini-can of Heineken later, everything was okay.
