André came home last night at about 1:30 a.m.!
And in case it wasn’t clear: when I wrote great news earlier, I was being ironic.
I heard great news from Plymouth this morning: André’s flight from Plymouth to London-Gatwick has been canceled because of fog. Instead of flying, everybody is now riding a coach to London. But of course that takes much longer than the flight, so André will miss his flight from Gatwick to Frankfurt as well. He’s been transferred to a later flight but will arrive in Frankfurt at 9:30 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m. I hope he’ll be able to catch a train to Bonn at 10 p.m. That way, he’ll arrive at home before midnight.
Suddenly, I feel very lucky that my flights were on time last Wednesday.
