Brighton Study Abroad 2010 travel blog

This is written a day after the fact, and won’t be uploaded for another couple days after that, but July 4 was the day I flew out of Chicago O’Hare. Security wasn’t bad except that I obviously didn’t know what I was doing, and our flight was scheduled to be on time.

We had to get to Concourse C from Concourse B, so we took an underground tunnel. It was really long and had multiple conveyor belts and neon lights on the ceiling in a rainbow that lit up in order. Of course, I HAD to have a picture in the mirrored ceiling. It isn’t very good, though.

We did board on time, but there was approaching bad weather, so we were in a lineup of planes. We actually saw them, waiting in turn for the runway. We got off a bit late, but the weather that had caused the delay pushed us, taking our flight length from 8h 20ish min to just over 7h.

The flight was mostly smooth, but there was some turbulence where we had to buckle our seatbelts. To me it felt like riding in a car more than anything, save for the obligatory screaming child, and that’s probably when I got the most/best sleep I had all flight. Go figure. :P

Dinner was chicken and rice (neither of which were very good)and a small salad with a balsamic vinaigrette (yum!) and a small packaged brownie (also very good). I asked what type of juices they had, hoping I could have some apple juice, and I found out that they had cranberry-apple juice. I haven’t had it in forever, but it’s just as good as I remember it. Plus it came in a can, and canned juice fascinates me for some reason.

All of this food is, of course, in addition to the Crispy Chicken Ranch BLT meal I had at McDonald’s before we left. :)

I was excited at first because one of the TV shows they were showing was an episode of the Big Bang Theory, but unfortunately, I hadn’t only seen it, it was one that hadn't I particularly liked. Too bad. I did try to listen to a little music, but the signal wasn’t very good, and I couldn’t hear my iPod too well.

The two days kind of run together a bit, but I think this is where I’ll cut off to make the separation. All is well.
