We're flying

OK, this is the big day! We flew with Delta out of Munich at 11:00 a.m., into Atlanta, then Fort Wayne from there.

Everything went as scheduled, no mayor delays or problems - just the regular tiresome long waits and endless security checks. Our luggage was exactly within the limits, maxed out but not going over it. Two suitcases per person, weighing 23 kg each, plus one carry-on bag and one laptop case per person, weighing no more than 18 kg total.

The immigration procedure in Atlanta was a new experience for me. Carry your brown envelopes with paperwork to this office, fill out a form quick, wait a while. Then the officer calls me by my first name - which I didn't expect, so I didn't react immediately. Got our fingerprints taken, received an explanaton of our rights and duties, and a *welcome to the United States*. Nobody wanted to see our x-rays. The whole transaction took less than 30 minutes.
