Myrna the Jetsetter

We are now back on US soil, after one long, long day. Myrna was a doll, a great blessing. Here are the stats...

4 - the number of new iPod headphones we found while packing.

2 - the number of people on our street we had helping us to get a taxi, after the one we had ordered still hadn't shown up.

113 - total weight (in Kilos) of our 5 checked bags. That's about 249 lbs. Thankfully, they calculated our weight limit as a total sum (ie 250 lbs was our limit and it was okay one suitcase was 56 lbs)

10 - the number of baskets we filled going through security in Köln (and they don't make you take off shoes or belts) plus a stroller.

2.90 - the price (in Euros) of a half liter beer in the Munich airport. (We didn't have any, but we couldn't believe how cheap it was for an airport.)

0 - the number of complimentary bottles of beer, glasses of wine and cocktails we consumed on the international leg of our flight.

8 - the number of flight attendants cooing over Myrna.

8 - the number of diaper changes (about half of which were in flight)

0 - the number of loud outbursts by Myrna that made her parents want to hide.
