At the Amsterdam airport, you naturally see clogs for sale.
We went through security for our flight back to the U.S. as soon as it opened - 1.5 hours before the flight was scheduled to take off. There were 20-25 security people carefully reviewing passports, baggage packing and handling questions, patting us down, and more. But they were still screening people as we filed into the airplane, and we took off 20 minutes late because security took so long. Crazy world.
Niall entertained himself by watching his new love: Star Trek TNG. We borrowed a disk with several episodes from Sieglinde and the girls, including The Borg. Classic. :-)
Back on home soil at last! We had to wait ages for a shuttle, and the shuttle itself took several hours to get us home. But we made it at last, with an eager little 5YO and a relieved Grandma awaiting us.
It was 5 p.m. on Friday, 1:00 in the morning Saturday for us, and we'd gotten up at 6:00 a.m. Thursday morning. Two very tired travellers!
