Lost in Newark

I had really hoped to finish talking about The Game before this trip, but alas it did not happened. So expect posts to weave between it now. Sorry about that.

Anyway, I'm trapped in Newark Airport right now. My flight to Newark was grounded in Cleveland due to some potential electrical issues (that turned out to be non-issues) and I ended up missing my flight to Hamburg. A day later, I'm in Newark waiting for my new flight. I'm pretty excited, but I'm worried about getting to Bremen now; I had booked a train from Hamburg to Bremen, but that ticket is no good to me now. I can either buy a new ticket online (that I can't print out so I'm not sure if it's any good) or wait until I get to the train station and try to buy a ticket on the spot.

Either way, I'll probably spend some time at the counter, which worries me since I don't speak a lot of German. I envy the fact that Lyle got a language class with his travel. Then again, I don't have a 2 year commitment. We'll see if I talk about food more than him.

About 2 hours before I can board the plane, then a 7 hour or so flight. I hope I can sleep during some of it; I can't imagine the Atlantic Ocean is that entertaining to look at, and I lost my window seat.

I thought German food was okay. In any case you'll have McDonalds =P I tried to tell my host family about McDonalds... they didn't understand at all.
