Seattle 2010 - MVP Summit - Day 8 - Getting back to Germany

The mission of today is just to get back to Germany. Not much exciting stuff in this blog post. The weather is pretty different in Seattle (sunshine) and Hannover (snow and freaking cold).

The weather in Seattle was pretty good, a little colder than the last few days, but blue sky and sunshine all over the place.

Waiting for the Taxi took forever and the relatively short trip (IMO) to the airport cost me 45 dollars (wtf).

The self-checkin only took a few minutes and I passed all security checks in a few minutes too.

At least there were some power plugs and free wifi (slow however) available at the airport in my 2 hour wait time.

Security checks in Amsterdam. The x-ray scanner broke in my line just before my bags got in there. So I had to go to the other side and some security personal did not like that and wanted to check all my bags now (wtf?). Nothing happend and even though all this waiting and checking took almost an hour, I still had some time until my delayed plane came anyway.

The book I read after both my netbook and iPhone batteries both pretty much died. Got almost 100 pages done, but was way too tired to finish it.

Weather in Amsterdam is pretty bad as you can see, our flight was delayed 30min.

And some Germany down below, at least some sun is coming through. The sun reflection (specular highlight) of the streets and rivers was pretty cool.

Buildings are much smaller around here, I always notice that when I come back, but not so much when living here.
