The Terminal

It's dreary and overcast in Frankfurt today. Surprise, surprise. As the plane taxied into the airport, the captain announced that it was currently two degrees below celcius. The plan to not step foot outside the terminal has been vindicated by the elements.

Frankfurt International is a great place to be a drifter for a day. There is free internet. There is a photography exhibition on the architectural fabric extravaganzas of Christo and his wife Jeanne-Claude. The benches in public areas don't have armrests to discourage sleeping across them. And last, but not least, it is possible to spot tall blond German men wearing black turtlenecks within two minutes of leaving the plane. Cue the Kraftwerk! Fun times in Germany.

Only 19 hours to go.
