We arrived a half hour early in Amsterdam, aided by a strong tail wind which at times reqched over 140 km (87 mph). The outside temperature during the flight reached as low as -53C (-63F).
Our next flight is on a Boeing 747. We haven't been on a 747 since the mid-1980s when we went to Hawaii. We are sitting in row 43! We didn't realize that we would be walking half way to Nairobi. Then we found out there are a total of 68 rows on the plane. Yikes! The 747 flight from Amsterdam to Nairob operates on a daily basis and it is full everyday.
They are calling for our plane to board, so we'll be' leaving on a jet plane .......'
Next stop Nairobi.
