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.
