3 legs of a trip - Reno to Denver (2 hours) to DC (2:45) to Frankfurt (7:30). The trip to Frankfurt was uneventful - I ended up in Economy plus on an aisle, with not one (1) but two (2) empty seats next to me. The Plus part of Economy Plus = about 7 more inches of foot/leg/knee room, which just might be the greatest thing ever on a long flight.

I ended up sleeping about 5 hours, though not consecutively, as I was woken up multiple times by someone in the vicinity who was passing gas like it was a sport, & they were the Olympic champion. Truly, whoever this was could give Brother, in travel mode, a run for his money.

Alex picked me up at the airport, & we dropped off my huge bag at his & Linda's home. It was there that I met Jonathan, their 7 month old huge puppy - I thought he was going to eat me, but instead he just licked me & has taken to removing my socks from my room on occasion.

Alex, Jonathan & I went to a Vietnamese restaurant where I ate spicy duck (psych! on the spicy part - it was white bread spicy, meaning not at all,) then we went for a walk around Kurfuerstenplaetz & Leipziger Strasse - got home a minute ago to find that Alex has wi-fi. So, the good news is I have email access 1 or 2x a day.

I'm jet lagging, but good - & it's taking all of my spidey-sense to stay awake. Pray for me; I'll check in soon.

It's 10 p.m. (or 1 p.m. PST) - I'm headed for sleep... We watched 3 episodes of the Office - Season 3. No commercials. Very nice.

Meetings start at 9:30 a.m. (12:30 in the a.m.) Now, here's to some good sleep for me.
