Surprise!! I'm in London!!!
Hi everybody. I was flying from Milan back home to Chicago with a 2 hour layover in London. Funny thing about London, as a city known for fog, it (we) is (are) experiencing a bit of foggy trouble. Airplanes have been able to arrive and depart at about 50% for the past 3 days. As I type there are thousands of stranded citizens of the world camping out at Heathrow and (I imagine Gatwick too) waiting just to go home. My 2 hour layover turned into a 3-day mini-vacation. I've decided to chuck the camping out and be a tourist for the time being. I head home on Saturday, that is if that flight isn't also cancelled. (AAAHHH!!!) So please pray for sun, pray for wind, 'cause I'd love to be back home before Santa comes down the chimney.
Note especially to June and a.c.t. or anyone else in/near London now: I'm at the Premier Travel Inn in Kew Bridge (sorry, have no number for that, but) if either/any of you wants to get lunch or dinner from now until Friday night, try calling the hotel.
