So far, so good. Desk agent in Lufthansa lounge was sympathetic an helpful \(though he did begin with "so what happened yesterday?"\).

Sun Jun 24 18:07:59 +0000 2012

Cautious optimism continues. Plus device charging and a beverage.

I have at times watched that show with a discomfiting sense of familiarity. I'd probably do well, but for having to stop to tweet.

Thank you! I hope your weekend is treating you well.

Nearing the one-hour-to-flight point. The waiting is making me nervous.

BUSINESS CLASS. \(I may weep\.\)

Oh, no. They are too adorable! And very wise in their thinking about higher education.

Thanks for all the support, Twitters. I'm off. More from Prague.

The bar by the pool has a great menu, including a killer kale salad. Also, happy hour, 4 to 7.

Sun Jun 24 21:46:58 +0000 2012

And there is wifi.

It's pretty intense on the beautiful people meter, I'll admit. I sat at the bar and read. Clearly a foreigner.

Is it sinus? That can last until you clear up the problem.

Sun Jun 24 22:10:18 +0000 2012

Alright. 8.37pm local time here in Prague, where I arrived 12 hours ago, and where my suitcase is set to arrive any minute now.

Mon Jun 25 18:38:25 +0000 2012

Not that I'm complaining! I had a lovely flight, thanks to the very nice desk agent in the Lufthansa lounge. And I'm here, which is great.

Mon Jun 25 18:39:12 +0000 2012

I'm… just saying. Is all.

It's hard to say. There's stuff going on more or less every night, some formal \(pres address Friday\), some informal. +

Those white spots out there? Swans. At least 40 of them, just hanging.
