- Sleep cubes - you could buy yourself time in a sleep box. Shut the door, pull down the shade, and snooze during your layover or unexpected overnight airport stay. Fascinating.
- Smoking lounges - gross.
- Porn shop - ok, maybe not that explicit, but next to cutesy souvenirs was a shop that did not admit minors and only had who knows what hiding in there. Gross again.
Many, many hours, movies, TV shows, airplane meals (we had a surprisingly delicious turkey sandwich!), magazines, and books later, we made it across the ocean back to Philadelphia. After making our way through a slow-ish customs process, we book-ended the trip with another stop at the Lego Liberty Bell. After hugs and waving goodbye to the Vaughns, I climbed aboard one last plane to head home to DC. Thank goodness this is such a short flight, because I was getting very, very close to full on my flight-time threshold for the day. One quick Metro ride home from the airport...and vacation is over. So sad. I did have a fabulous time with my friends, though, and I'm so glad we made this trip happen. Auf Wiedersehen!
