I've made it to Frankfurt!  The 7 hour and 20 minute flight from Dulles to Frankfurt went by pretty quickly.  I sat next to a woman from Denmark who had been living in the United States for over 20 years (having spent 8 of them in NYC) and was moving back to Copenhagen from New Orleans---what a change!  The girl beside her was headed to Kazakhstan.

When I landed I stood in line for an hour or so to get a boarding pass for my flight to Amman tonight.  Then I hopped on the S-Bahn for a 20 minute ride to the city center/Römerberg.  I met a girl from Berlin on the S who was just returning from New Zealand---a 32 hour flight.  She was there for 3 weeks backpacking around.  Turns out she had been a nanny on the Upper Eastside a few years ago.  So we chatted about the cost of living in NYC compared to Berlin.  

When I got to my stop I walked in to a few churches and strolled along the Main (river).  It is HOT in Frankfurt and lots of people were sitting at outside cafes enjoying gelato and ice-less Coca-Cola.  I myself indulged in a margharita pizza bread and a Fanta (the Fanta was for you Ben!).  I took a bunch of pictures and hope to post them once I get to Amman.  

I think my hour of wi-fi is about to expire.  Time to listen to some tunes on my sweet playlist.
