Our first hour here in Washington D.C. was spend sitting in an Irish Pub. My eyes and stomach settled on a Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Avocado sandwich. Despite being a strongly pork dominated country, Germany does not seem too interested in American style bacon. It was my $11.99 chance to enjoy the crispy meat candy one last time before the next 12 months take over. (Right now we only make it home to the States once a year at Christmas.)
During a lengthy layover, there is only so much Duty-Free shopping to be done. Right now I'm sampling some French floral scented perfume. (I hope my 10 hour in-flight neighbor likes it!) I scooped out the magazines in three different newsstands. After shifting through the out-dated covers loaded with Christmas recipes, I landed on two interior design magazines. Now I'm sitting here twirling my thumbs wondering how to pass the remaining two hours. Then I thought, why not give you the first blog entry for 2014?
During our last Irish lunch here in America, I found a beautiful 20 dollar bill folded up in my purse. After our layover that $20 bill is not going to do us much good until next December. So in anticipation of the homesick blues, I decided to go on a
Next Up... a Starbucks, need to use up my gift card, shopping trip. Surely, some of those Via Instant Coffee packets will fit into my carry-on. Only 1 hour and 30 minutes left until boarding!
Hope to see you in Munich during 2014!
