Hop to The Heathrow Hilton

We disembarked this morning in Barcelona and took a taxi to the airport. We'd spent a few dollars to check in for our BA flight in the Regatta's Internet Cafe yesterday and it paid off with seats 6D and 6F right behind First Class in a 757.

Interesting idea BA has. They fed us a sandwich and a small candy bar on the two-hour-plus flight, a novel experience for those of us who fly domestic on United Airlines. Half of the sandwich was a ham sandwich and half was a tuna sandwich. Okay, it was two half-sandwiches to be precise. The tuna lovers are happy, the ham lovers are happy, and the casual vegetarians can place the ham in the seat pocket and also be happy. As for us, after 14 days of cruise dining, yes, we ate it all.

We landed just a little late and by the time we walked through that strangely long tube from Terminal 4 to the Hilton it was 3:30 p.m. or so. We may get around to posting some pictures from our cruise here fairly soon, or it may be a couple of days. Check this space for future developments.

In summary, it was a terrific cruise and we're already looking forward to the next one. We're also looking forward to seeing our grandchildren back on the other side of the Big Pond.
