The trip home to Texas

Postby Niner Alpha » Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:45 pm

Jerry sent me these photos today of his trip through Saigon to the Airport.

Hi Robert...well we finally made it to my kids near Houston. My having to reschedule my flights resulted in a 12 hours wait at the Singapore airport....and having to stop in Moscow on the way to Houston is a pain. The Moscow airport is terrible. We have to get off the plane with our carryon luggage, then we all have to go thru "xray" inspection of our luggage before going to our gate to get back on the same plane that we just got off of. BTW: Moscow has only one machine to x-ray ~300 people's luggage..so...it takes a while. Then we have to stand in front of the gate for an hour before they will let us in to sit down. As you enter the gate they do another inspection of luggage where they require you to actually open the luggage. I guess that they added this inspection after the recent terrorist explosion, because it was not required on the way over.

The initial pictures that I have attached are of the new modern highway that I have referred to on several occasions. I have also attached a few shots of why I don't like to go to Saigon....the traffic....and...finally..the new Than Su Nuot airport in Saigon which is really very nice.

Hope to join you guys tonight on Skype.

Jerry
