Into the Cold

Tuesday, 26. January 2010

Left Sandton on Sunday afternoon at about 30 degrees Celsius for an overnight flight to Frankfurt to continue to Bucharest. Although leaving late since the bridge could not be pulled from the aircraft we did arrive Frankfurt almost in time. The whole airport was white. Due to the snowfall that started during the night Lars-Olof was challenged to get to the airport. But he made it. So I was lucky to spent some time with him.

When he left, my flight to Bucharest seemed to be one of the few that were on time, and I had to make my way thru security. Arriving at the gate everything had changed – delay. Finally at 12:00 the our aircraft had left Heathrow towards Frankfurt, but before leaving then Frankfurt de-icing had to be done. But we finally made it. Arriving Bucharest temperature was – 14 degrees Celsius, and in the night Monday to Tuesday even -22!
