Pulled myself and my suitcase together this morning and was at the airport in plenty of time to get checked in, go through security, and find my gate. My first flight was to Cairo, then after a 2.5 hour wait, a plane from Cairo to Milan where I’ll stay two days before traveling to Budapest.
Both flights were on EgyptAir. On both flights I was served a meal. I’m not sure how they where able to serve a full meal on an hour flight (Luxor to Cairo), but they did. (I should have taken a picture.) The other thing I didn’t mention before is that at landing, the passengers clap their hands as the plane touches the ground.
We got into Milan a little early and it was quite a change from warm weather to cold. While it was only in the 70’s in Luxor – it was in the 40’s in Milan.
I have a very early flight on Wednesday so decided to stay at the Sheridan in the airport. Big hotel and very nice (and quiet too). I had heard about the long hallways, but the picture below shows just how long they are. You can almost make out the end of the hallway – that is where I turn right to the hallway to my room. Great exercise!
