ha ha - I am on vacation

I have been waiting for days to use that title on this page, and now I can:I am in the lounge at Heathrow waiting for my flight to Prague. Unfortunaunately, I will be waiting longer than I thought because my flight has been delayed for thirty minutes.

When I am on a business trip, this kind of thing stresses me out, because the last place I want to spend my free time is at the airport. But, considering I have 10 days of free time in front of me, I am not going to worry about half an hour.

And it feels like a holiday already. I was baffled by this for a minute, but realised it is not the usual crowd in the lounge. Instead, there are a lot of people here waiting for the flight to Istanbul. Football fans will understand. AND it seems like every one of them has four or five empty beer cans in front of them. Yep - like a holiday.

It reminds me of traveling around Japan during the 2002 World Cup. That was great fun. I wish I was going to Istanbul. I'll do the second best thing and have a beer. Or four.
