View from hotel is nice if you squint and ignore the Rewe grocery store
We had an early breakfast at 6am so we could catch the airport shuttle back to Frankfurt at 7am. It's a good thing we left early, because traffic was at a standstill around the city. Still got to the airport in plenty of time. Peggie and Jerry had to wait much longer since their flight was later in the day. We're sure our driver was trying to be helpful, but he sent us to the wrong place. We asked several times but he kept telling us that United was in Terminal 2. We still had a weird feeling as we dropped off P&J at Terminal 1 for Lufthansa. United and Lufthansa are partners so it seemed strange but away we went. We walked and didn't see it. Then we asked and they sent us to the far end of the terminal. Got there, still no luck. So we looked for the big Information sign and they told us "Oh, no, that's in Terminal 1 - you better go catch the Sky Train." So, off we went walking fast. Luckily, it wasn't that bad and all the other lines in at check-in and security were easy-peasy. Same with flight and with Customs on our end. Sounds like we definitely had the easiest trip. Peggie and Jerry contended with sitting at the airport for a few hours, still being sick, lost luggage, layovers in Denver to get to Scottsbluff, dead truck at airport before jump, dead truck on way home from Airport and big hail that day. Still don't think they've looked at the truck in daylight yet. The first thing we did in the USA was head to McDonald's for Filet-o-Fish Value Meal (Brian), plain cheesburgers (Amy), and huge Diet Coke with lots of ice (both!). We are glad to be home but it was a great trip. It was very nice to spend time with family and to get to know everyone a little more. Thanks to all in Germany for sharing your homes, your hospitality and the sights of your beautiful country. Thanks for you patience with our pronunciation (or lack of it) and for teaching us something new every day. The door is always open for you all to come visit Washington, D.C., the Shenandoahs, Annapolis and Southern Maryland. There's lots to see and do - from monuments, museums, the White House and the Zoo to hiking, biking, sailing, eating crabcakes and watching the Amish clop around in their buggies. Think about it and keep in touch.
