Lounging in Style

Lounging in STYLE! We made it safely to Newark. . .probably an 8th of our journey completed. . but don't tell Greg! Did you know that if you pay for anything on your ticket with a platinum american express that it gets you into "club level" for most airlines? Well, my dad did! He told us about this for Liberia and so we used Amex to pay for our taxes and were able to use the nice club lounge when we got back to America. We have another hour before take off to Amerstdam, then a 3 hour layover before take off to Uganda. Yep, another 16 hours in flight!!! We will arrive in Uganda around 8ish Uganda time (which is 1 pm EST) Oh my, that's 22 hours from now. . .I'm pretty thankful that I packed that Simply Sleep to knock me out for some of this next flight!
We are enjoying the free food, free wifi and plug ins and free drinks at the President's Club for now. . .here are Jon and I, already flipping open our laptops to blog! Greg didn't want his picture taken because his mouth was full (no joke!) PS I know my face looks fat, but hey self portraits are hard to do on an iPhone!
