Arrived in Seattle this morning on the first leg of flights to Russia. I have a 2-hour layover here, so I've had time to check in and learn that I have an aisle seat. Score! But I learned there is no wi-fi on international flights. Ouch. My flight to Amsterdam is 9 hours, 55 minutes.
The Ball State students and the BSUatthegames team arrived safely in Amsterdam last night. I will be joining the group at the airport.
Security confiscated my small jar of peanut butter that I had in my carry-on. Terrorists lead, 1-0. I did not check any bags. My travel needs remain pretty simple.
It is 45 degrees in Sochi now, but 9 in Spokane. Go figure.
Reports of unprepared hotels in Sochi continue to be a bad omen. Our group is fortunate because we will be housed on a cruise ship, the Louise Olympia. Not sensing any Olympic fever here at SeaTac. There's that football team that folks seem happy about.
