greetings from frankfurt. as predicated i did not make the connection in montreal. well actually i sprinted against their orders and made the gate just in time but they would not let me board w-o my checked baggage. some cannadian law or something. so they flew me to toronto, which was in the wrong direction. and then to frankfurt. we were in the air 45 minutes and then they turned around due to some generator malfunction. then we sat in the airport for an hour. then we boarded another plane and sat on the tarmac for an hour. they announced the engine was messed up and we deplaned again. another hour or so in the empty airport. i did some yoga. my ears are messed up from all the takeoffs and landings. the third plane worked. now i am at some weird inter city hotel, where it costs a euro for two minutes of internet. but tomorrow i will allegedly go to india.
it took me TWENTY FOUR HOURS TO GET HERE.
and the germans have really weird keyboards.
...at least i now have some euro coins, so i can stop and get one of those amazing bretzels i passed by today.
and the yoga mat is in the carry on!
