OK, it’s official, the tickets have been bought and confirmed. Looks like I’m going to have a bit of an adventure just getting there. Turns out that I have cut out one leg of the trip. Originally I was supposed to go from DC to NYC, to Germany, to Dubai, and then Yemen. I managed to cut out the whole Germany connection and save a bit of money too. I have longer layovers though. 12 hours in Dubai and 36 hours in NYC. Turns out that I’ll get to see NYC before I go overseas after all! The plane arrives at JFK at 8:30ish in the morning. I don’t leave until 11pm the next day. Maybe I’ll hook up with my stepsister Coleman or some of my other friends up there. I’ll be in Dubai from about 8:30 pm till 7:30 AM the next day. Once again, gotta be something I can do instead of hanging out at the airport.
A little airport purgatory is well worth the savings I got on these tickets. I can stay over there for an extra month with the money I saved, not a bad trade off eh? BTW, Economy Travel has about the best prices on international flights that I can find. Well worth checking out.
