    Coffena SCAE 2009 Köln (Cologne) - Travel to get there.

    Travel is often fun. When you book last minute you get what you get. In this case it was Eastern China Air that took me to Shanghi and the from Shanghai to Frankfurt (Germany) where I caught a train (300kmh train) to Cologne.

    The dudes in white suits stormed the plane when it touched down in shanghai. Everyone had their teperature taken with a infrared gun and they found 6 people that they wanted to quarantine.

    It was touch and go as to if I was going to endup in China for a week instead of Germany.

    >:(

    As it happend we got cleared after nearly 2 hours so all I got to see was the airport. Maybe on the way back Ill get to see more of Shanghai.

    AU$8 espresso (above) was pretty good. Too expensive but good and miles better than what was on the plane.

    Woo Hoo. Glad to get to this point after 34 hours of changing planes and wondering if I was going to get there.

    I have to home on the same airline yet and hide from anyone with even the slightest cough or sniffle.

    Fingers double crossed.

    Germany rocks this time of year. Great weather, similar to Northern NSW summer if I had to guess and top food, beer and great people.
