It was a extremly short flight for me. After Australia everything which lasts not more than 24 hours will be short, I guess.
While I was running in Paris from one gate to the other, the french were relaxed. The plane startet one hour or more later. Somehow I knew that the ash clouds of the vulcano of iceland will somehow influence my travel. Lucky me I didn’t check the news before I started because I would have heard that Innsbruck and Salzburg were closed and they were also thinking of closing Vienna. So I was very excited that I could see down to Iceland from the plane even if I couldn’t see the vulcano. It was enough that I could know that there it started that the time stood still for a while in Europe few weeks ago. I liked it.
I think I have a good relationship to customer officers. Arriving in Australia I heard him say “We have waited for you” (Did he really know who I am?) and now in Chicago I could hear him say: “You are awesam”. How nice, isn’t it. Besides, what the hell did I say to them? I remember that I tried to look very naiv in Australia knowing it isn’t allowed to bring Polenta but now?
The flight from Chicago to Madison lasted one hour and I was happy to sit next to
a young man and we had a nice talk. Finally I asked him what his profession is and he is a comedien — no wonder that we had a colourful conversation. http://www.jeffhavens.com/ and as you all know I need to know more about how to get fired.
So I felt pretty welcomed in the State besides the Lady at the counter whom I wanted to explain that I missed the plane because the ash cloud. I think she wasn’t interested in the ash cloud. So I smiled at Betty Harper and thought that she was allowed to smile on the photo of her identity card and therefore she could look quite furious at me in real life.
If you didn’t check it out by now, I am here because I love to talk English and so I try to improve it. But the most important point that I wanted to visit “America’s Dairy Land” was Betty Averill. Soon you will know why.
I love to learn and when I wanted to learn from the country Australia, I want know to learn from Betty, a wonderful old Lady.
