Blane in Europe: Hot Times at Frankfurt Airport

We arrived at Frankfurt Airport around 5:15pm. Frankfurt hit 102 degrees F today (just under 39 C), and the glassed-indoors in the airport that were no doubt hotter.

We checked in at the Hilton Garden Inn, and were lucky to be just ahead of a long queue .

Our room was tolerably cool.

We made the 10-minute walk to Terminal 1 B and found a kiosk that accepted Blane’s “new” passport and spat out a boarding pass for him. That’s huge because it means we can skip the check-in counter tomorrow.

Then it was back through the glassed-in sweat boxes to our room.

Brian went searching for a cool restaurant and found it in the next-door Hilton.

Blane said his Margherita Pizza was delicious, and the German attempt at Tandoori Chicken was valiant.

The highlight was Blane’s Chocolate Lava Cake.

A suitable finalé to our trip.
