Just a quick update from the Frankfurt Airport, where it costs 8 euros to get online for an hour. We've got a few hours to kill here before our flight to St. Petersburg. We had a hard time finding a place to camp out. Some of us are doing homework, others eating, practicing our German...whatever it is that people do to pass the time at airports...oh yeah -- duty free!
Lufthansa has been a decent experience so far. The food blows any U.S. carrier out of the water, and the Bailey's to finish off our dinner was a nice touch. The movie/tv selection was entertaining. I watched the indie film, An Education. It left me with mixed feelings...what else is new :) Then I was forced to turn to more serious reading -- Amartya Sen's Development as Freedom for my ICT4D lit review.
We will hopefully check in again from St. Petersburg, where it's 25 degrees F as we speak.
