Arrived safely in Munich

Wie ghets, wos ist los? (forgive me, my German is rusty). We have arrived in Munich (about an hour ago) and it is 10:20 here but it is 2:18 back home. We both are very sleepy (I, Felix, do not sleep well sitting up). Heidi got a little more sleep than I did, but she is very tired too. We are at an airport restaurant called Weiners, Der Kaffee and I just enjoyed Viennese sausages with mustard for breakfast. Heidi had a little sandwich.

We met Heidi's family for dinner at a nice Italian restaurant outside Chicago's O'Hare airport. It was good to see Sally, Shannon and Max before we took off to the other side of the world. They gave us encouragement and hugs all evening as we spent time with them. Max took us back to the airport so we could catch our flight out.

We are gonna log off and find a nice quiet place to nap until our flight at 1pm. We will be in Kiev at 4pm (6am MST, Denver). No doubt we will snooze well tonight at Karen's place.

Aufweidesien!! (sp?)

You're almost there! Actually you're probably there by now, having found luggage, filled out the customs forms, jammed your luggage into the car your facilitator hired and are now flying through the streets (and maybe sidewalks) of Kiev on the way to your apartment.
Welcome to Kiev! :)

You should be in Kiev now-woo hoo!

Just got caught up on your "blog". Nice words. I appreciate that you recognize that you are no different or any better because, in reality, you're not and either are any of us. Those who get to do this are called to do so and are fortunate and blessed. In hind sight you will appreciate even more the hand of God in the process as it is such a joke of a mess it can only succeed with divine guidance. I know you enough, though, to know that you ARE, indeed, a "cut-above"! I am already missing you two. Keep your heads on straight. Matt
