5 August 2007 Starting Out
Heidelberg->Frankfurt Flughafen->Air China 966
I don’t know why I thought I had left enough time this morning. After all, I was not the last to bed and had packed just about everything I needed. I had the short list of things which had to be done this morning. I did not put other people’s crises on my list.
You can just guess what happened.
End result is that I forgot a couple of things that I really needed and was the last one out the door rather than the first.
The S-Bahn was bad enough, jam packed with people. The train from Mannheim to the airport was impossible. We never made it past the entry way, much less sat down any where for the trip.
But we were in plenty of time for our plane, dropping off a couple dozen kids books that I had logged through BookCrossing at the USO and making it with all members of the party alive all the way through to check in. Shall I just say that it is a long flight?
As I think I mentioned, I became frustrated with knitting the pattern in Florenz because it did not show up against the colour changes in the yarn. I went to stripes for the foot, and finished off the first sock on the flight.
