I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
It's been a long day but my friend & I have arrived in Lyons. A crowded overnight flight to Frankfurt. Our flight was late, we got separated at some point, then found one another again at the departure gate of a later flight that we were rebooked on. Both suitcases arrived, a minor miracle! A shuttle ride to our hotel and we were able to collapse. Showering was awesome! Birding begins tomorrow.
Frankfurt airport is so confusing!
