August 29, 2010 Sunday: Flight to London

We got up at 6:10 and were ready to go before 7:00.  We walked to the Hofbahnhaus and got a pastry for breakfast.  Then we got on the S-bahn, the S1 which we found out didn't go all the way to the airport.  At one point it split into two trains and only the back one went to the airport.  We had to get off the front of the train and move to the back.  They dropped us off right in the middle of Terminal 1.  When we figured out that Larry and Derek had to go to Gate B and Erin to Gate D in Terminal 1, we knew we had to split up.  I had to go to Terminal 2.  So we said goodbye and went our separate ways.  Larry and Derek left first, then Erin, then me.  I stood in line to get my ticket, to check my bag, to go through security and to go through passport control and I still had three hours to wait.  When I got to the gate they had a few chairs that were like lounges.  I got one of these and read until it was time to board

We got into London Heathrow a little early and I got through customs and baggage claim in no time.  Rita was there to pick me up and I had my first "cuppa" in two weeks.  Rita fixed a snack for us as they had had a late lunch and I had had of a sandwich on the plane.  We had biscuits (crackers), cheese, cucumbers, Branston pickle, red peppers, and cherry tomatoes.  A little later Josie came for a visit and we had another “cuppa.”  Ursula and Warren came for supper.   Rita made the traditional roast beef, roast potatoes and parsnips, Yorkshire pudding, green beans and carrots.  It was delicious.  We had strawberries and cream for pudding.   After supper we watched some TV and I got tired and went to bed.  I couldn’t sleep so I wrote one day’s blog.  I am so far behind.  I’m going to have to have Larry check all of these when I get home, before I send them out.
