So this is going to be around the world in 95 days with a number of stops in various cities, countries and taking a number of different modes of transportation. I started yesterday in Berkeley by car to Rockridge BART Station and on from there to the airport.
Car -> BART -> airplane (SFO-FRA) -> foot & skytrain -> airplane (in a few minutes SFO-DEL) where I arrive at 0130 in the morning (can you tell that I am ever so thrilled about the arrival time?).
I was silly enough to follow the direction signs when exiting the plane in Z (at the end of the terminal of course) to get to Concourse C. Frankly, it would have been faster just to use the short cut between terminals, but no – the new directions have you hiking out of Z, all the way to a choice between baggage claim and the rest of the airport and around and past a number of choices to arrive at the Skytrain followed by a 15 second ride to Terminals B/C…. and back through security and a quick document check. At least I have the lounge in which I can drink more coffee prior to my next flight.
I am thinking supper followed by a nap. It looks like I am facing another 5.5 hours time zone change and 10*C on arrival (with highs ~ 25*C during the day). Time to scramble the clothing choices again…..
(BTW – Shana’s cats have been attempting to kill that large rubber duck…..
