Got up at 5:00 a.m.

Took the 7:00 a.m. train back to Domodedovo.

Check-in desk opened at 8:30. I am second in line.

Then they told all of us to go over to those check in desks. Now I'm behind a bunch of people. But there are more behind me.

Left Domodedovo on the 11:30 train back to town.

I will fly out. Tonight at 7:20 p.m. From Sheremetyvo.

And I will arrive in the Ancestral Village tomorrw around 6:00 p.m.

After going through Chicago.

And spending six hours in Tokyo.

I will not complain about my trip (all 25 hrs it took to get to portland)! I am trying to get Leos flight changed to go through atlanta instead of jfk, but we will see . . . I wish you luck!!!

Alls well that ends well, as Katherine would say:) Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Dawn said...

Wow that is quite the route change. Why Tokyo? could have come through Canada maybe? but good luck and happy holiday when you finallly get home! I am sure it will be all worth it!

in retrospect it will just be one of your many crazy adventures and I hope you will manage to get some sleep in one of those comfy chairs in Tokyo. Please report back as soon as you're home, we're all very anxiuos this end.

Tokyo?????? Hun??????? Let us know when you and the girls arrive back at the AV in the midwest.

I hope when you got on the airplane two hours ago that you ordered a big glass (or two) of wine!!!!

I echo everyone else: TOKYO?! So, you decided it would be fun for the holidays to fly 3/4 of the way around the world??? Have a safe flight, but wow! I hope you can get some sleep in flight (and in Tokyo)! At least you can avoid Europe's crazy blizzard--and New England's too, come to think of it.

A few more hours and you and the girls will be home in the ancestral village. Your trip rates as a Trip from Hell for sure.
