Today was the first day of our European trip. It seems like such a long day because I didn’t go to bed last night. I spent too much time yesterday trying to do other things. It finally all worked out, but I am really tired. Right now I’m sitting in Bass Pro Outdoor World in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We have an 8.5 hour layover before our flight out tonight for Frankfurt. We rented a car and went to “brunch” at the IHOP. It was wonderful. The food and the service were great. The waitress spoke as though she were from Jamaica. She was great. We decided to rest right now at the entrance on the wonderful furniture that is available. We love this store, if nothing more than for the wonderful place to rest. Anyway, our flight tonight is an overnighter, so we think we will be able to sleep just fine. So far we’ve driven around and done nothing but see what all is going on in Ft. Lauderdale, Dana Beach areas… We are now at the Ft. Lauderdale airport trying to get to Frankfurt. This has got to be one of the noisiest airports I’ve ever seen. They do have wi-fi so I tried to Skype Tony, but his webcam went out. So he could see and hear us, but we could only hear him a little over this noisy crowd. Anyway, I don’t have pictures yet to upload, but tomorrow we will be in Frankfurt and then on to Paris.
