Day 2 of Departure...Germany

Upon my arrival here at Frankfurt-Dusseldorf International, I contemplated visiting the city during my layover.  Immediately after exchanging a wad of rupees into euros, I've seen the error in my ways.  

Leave it to my continuing karmic retribution to now damage my laptop that has been (barely) faithful over these few years.  Now I have a massive vertical negative color stream running along the left side of my monitor.  Hopefully it is nothing more than a nuisance.

That being said, I didn't realize how excited I was to land in Germany and have the potential to see the country.  There is something fascinating about this place and their people, and I mean that with the full sense of historical significance as history and legacy seem to be important to the German identity.

Anyway...I'm going to India, so enough about Germany.

OK...last point...Lufthansa...great airline!

I've been putzing around with my video camera, and I think it's safe to assume that I will have a video posted on here within the next day or so.  With that in mind, don't buy video cameras from Sears.  Their electronics employees know NOTHING about electronics other than the price of the item and whether it's in stock.

I'll let that sit in your mind while I attempt to bribe a German demsel (is that term appropriate here?) and allow me to use one of the Business/First Class lounges.

Guten Tag,
