Coming Home

After what happened yesterday, when I saw that weather predictions in Chicago are still Thunderstorms for the day, I was worried what is going to happen. However, I was not as much worried as I was yesterday. However, given that I did take up a flight that gave me a 5+ hour layover in Chicago was an insurance. I started my day early and reached at the Airport at 7.15am. It was well in time and I did bring in the bag that I was leaving back yesterday. I did bring in some more of my clothes than I was thinking off.

After checking-in the bag, when I reached at the Security counter, I met Alex. We first met at the Marriott last year, but he left the job in January and we have kept in touch via Facebook. We did talk about meeting up at the airport but his was a morning shift and yesterday I was going at noon. But, today I ended up being at the same spot where he had his duty. He did come up to meet me after his shift was over – it was nice catching up with him.

I had a 2 hour wait at the MSP airport which got extended to 2.5 hours because the flight got delayed. Flight was initially delayed for an hour but luckily it was cut short by 30 minutes and we were airborne. I did watch Episode 14 of Season 8 for House MD. I had wanted to complete the series in US itself a couple of months back, but then I got hooked on to Lost and never got around to finish this series. This was an interesting episode where I found Gregory House (the lead character) take an unexpected turn. But, the way it ended, I have a feeling the Lisa Cuddy will break-up with House after what he said to Lisa. Next episode in the flight to India.

I reached Chicago Airport in about 50 minutes of flight which was all smooth expect the last 10 minutes of turbulence. The plane taxied for 15-20 minutes at the airport and the attendant informed us that it had taxied at every taxiway that exists in the O’Hare terminal – that was something. I did notice that place crossed a bridge over roads and railroad tracks – that was cool (don’t get to see that happen in India). At the airport, I found my way to the Gate – K16 and once I had located the same, went over to Starbucks and got a Mocha and Banana Cake. I also paid up $7 for accessing internet at the Airport. I don’t know why people say it is free at the airport!! It is not. And, here I am – writing this blog post which will be updated when I arrive in Delhi. Time to go and find some other stuff to do on internet :).

Enjoy this until I update this on other side of the planet.
