Waiting area at Miami International airport
Watching them wrap luggage in plastic wrap for a fee
Honestly, this was mesmerizing, the way they spun the luggage and wrapped it
Mom's thought bubble: I'm so happy I'm going to Spain!! Cruise? What cruise? We're going on a cruise??
Being in the Miami airport is good practice for going to Spain, because no one here speaks English either.
Restaurants at the gate
Waiting at the gate for way too many hours
Apparently lots of wheelchairs will be accompanying us to Spain
Looking at the plane and making sure no one steals our stuff
My thought bubble: I'm so happy I'm going on a cruise!! Spain? We're going to Spain? Nobody said anything about Spain!
Also: hey, look, I'm in front of Versailles!
International terminal...seriously, this mess is at least a 15min walk.
Cool rounded skylight area
La Carreta! aka my most favorite Cuban restaurant ever
Croquetas from Versailles at the airport. I feel so bad I cheated on La Carreta.
In retrospect, I probably wouldn't have chosen ham croquetas for my last American meal if I knew exactly how much ham I would consume for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Spain. Now I never want to see ham again.
Our plane - 2/3/2 seats configuration
Window view - right on the wing
American Airlines - ew
The customs form for Americans that they gave us while they were waiting to fix the A/C onboard. I don't know why Europe bothers with customs - it's Europe, there are no rules!
FINALLY leaving the terminal, oh, just an hour late. Thanks A/C problem.
Here we go
Way too excited at this point and photographing everything American
Ready for takeoff!
Goodbye to one Spanish city! (only to head to another)
No idea what this is supposed to be.
Goodbye beautiful FL coast and beaches!
Dinner time! My dinner: chicken in mysterious red sauce and "mashed potatoes" and "green beans", roll, crackers and gruyere cheese wedge, blondie bar, salad with surprisingly good dressing, and bottled water.
Mom's dinner: lasagna with salad, crackers/gruyere, blondie bar, roll, and bottled water.
