2009 USA Tour : March 31st, Bye Bye USA friends until next year
Woke up this morning in Chicago, the blue skies drifting from my head
Warmer day but raining and windy, the traditional condition, we are told, of Chicago. I did not explore, like I intended, but caught up on emails and blogging. Claire continued to lay in.
We were booked on a flight departing in the evening but Aer Lingus moved us to an afternoon departure flight. After some breakfast it was clearly time to make our move to O’Hare airport.
Chicago O’Hare Airport
I had always had good experiences at O’Hare airport but this visit to O’Hare seemed to be very thin in amenities.
Checking in and and passage through security was fast. We were warned that past security services were thin so we had two lovely wrap sandwiches before entering.
Yes, on the other side of security was very minimal, but also very quiet. We were disappointed to find that Aer Lingus moving us from the evening flight to afternoon flight will mean a stop at Shannon on the way, which is not a fun thing to go through. The evening departure flight is direct.
I also discovered that the airport WiFi at this terminal is not working, so I could not post last minute blogs and emails.
Bye Bye USA
So here’s almost closing this blog with a huge broad bunch of hugs and thank yous for lots of lovely folk all over the USA who allowed us to make this year’s tour happen so that it was a wonderful success for us. So many lovely people and situations come to mind and I hope they have all been duefully mentioned during these past blogs.
Its almost boarding time now.
I will close the blogs of this tour when we arrive in Dublin in a few hours.
