Good weather today, so I made it to New York finally. Landing at La Guardia is spectacular because the plane flies close to manhattan and even over the statue of liberty, so my album of New York is allready packed with great pictures! Still waiting to check in and to go down town and getting amazed! I'll have to hurry though, because I'm allready leaving on tuesday. See you all back on wednesday!
Waiting on the airport for 12 hours seeing your flight getting delayed every hour isn't fun at all. I always had a romantic view on the aspect of sitting and waiting at the gate, but that is now a great illusion. To make it worse: I have boarded two times in the airplane and exited it twice after the captain announced we couldn't take off, the second time our flight eventually got cancelled due to fog on JFK. God damn, I should have been standing on Times Square right now with my sunglasses on watching all the billboards! Oh well, second try tomorrow.
Thanks to Nadia, who works at Disney, we got 6 free tickets to spent the whole weekend at Eurodisney in Paris! If you're able to block out the constant musac, it's actually a great place to walk around and revive your childhood memories. Of course, there's quite good action too, especially with the Space Mountain, Star (Wars!) Tours, Aerosmith rollercoaster and so on. There's even a cool show with a crew of stuntman performing a carchase on a huge filmset with explosions, gunfire .. even Herbie shows up at a certain point. One thing's for sure: exciting carchases in movies will never be the same anymore after I've seen the clever tricks the film industry is using. Big thanks to Nadi again!
This morning in Barcelona, we went to the Plaça Sant Jaume to see the human towers also called Castell. A group of people try to build a tower and is considered a success if nobody falls during this event. The first one collapsed, but the others formed a perfect tower. Anyway, heading home this evening, let's hope the next DrupalCon is also in a city where at the same time a local festivity is going on!
