This airport is HUGE. My flight docked about 3 miles from where my connecting flight takes off, and for that I am happy that I have a 3.5 hour wait. I was worried about not getting enough exercize. Ha!! After a walk that included about 10 moving walkways and an incredibly short tram ride (about 1/2 block - what was the point of that??!!) and more moving walkways, two down escalators and two more up escalators, I am parked outside the gate for Cincy. I am in a little enclosure where others have plugged in their laptops and pulled out their cell phones and conducted their business so I thought I would as well. However, suddenly, they have all disappeared and I have become the lady that looks like she knows something. If one more person comes up and asks me about their flight, I may have to pack up and resort to reading.
Seems several flights have been cancelled from here due to fog today and I am only praying that i don't become one of them. I've been there before and I do empathize with these stranded passengers... not to mention the airport employees that take the brunt of the frustration. Ick - not for me!
If I make it to Cincy today I am really excited about the task ahead. Heck, I love all of it. I know Mark hates travelling so much, but he does stay at the downtown ***** (encoded for my privacy! LOL) with all the great amenities and the big ol' lavish and comfy bed. A whole week, no cooking, cleaning or nothing! Better yet, no taking Mom back and forth to the bathroom, bedroom, livingroom or all the nasty stuff that goes along with that. I love her but....!! Thanks Alyssa & Harriet!!
Mark is leaving Cincy on Friday, home in Utah for less than 24 hours and then flies out to go skiing with his buddies at Whistler. I am envious but he didn't fly me out of Cincy until Sunday so I figure I am in for a good full two days of SHOPPING!! I simply am NOT going to complain about that!
Stay tuned for the photos that will be appearing shortly.
