The terminal we arrived at was something out of the 50s I would say, but they are renovating it now. There is some major expansion going on at other terminals in the airport. Clearing customs was no problem at all. Hand your passport to the Customs Officer who takes it and wordlessly punches a whole lot of buttons and after a couple of minutes hands it back to you . . . still without a word. On a positive note are bags were waiting for us once we cleared customs and clearance was pretty quick with lots of Officers on hand.
The Dreamliner we thought we were taking was a teaser
We saw some interesting looking architecture on the drive in . . . a good half hour at breakneck speed. Jill is still recovering from the experience. PLease note the AC (only slightly noisy, but effective) and the wide screen 14" TV above it. The room is small but clean and we are here for only one night.
We are about a 5 minute walk to the Heritage Museum and have tickets to visit there tomorrow. Well, it is time to sign off as we are going to go and find a place for supper.
Oh ya Warsaw airport for a Cafe Americano was 4 Euros. Rivals Pearson's lunch (Burger Frys and a diet pop each . . .$29.00 with tax.
Polish Airways (LOT) were excellent! Very nice meal on the first leg . . . and a nice sandwich on the second leg.
