Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

… and we’re back!

Posted on: January 13, 2007

Lots of photos and updates to come, but its nice to be home!!!

Reentering the country was much easier than we expected — we didn’t even have to split up into different lines because of our different passports. The only hangup was in Heathrow — word of advice, do not buy any duty free liquids when you have a layover. Turns out in London you have to change terminals and go through security again, and are subjected to the liquid ban at that point even though you purchased them at the airport. So our brief layover in London was spent going through passport control there (in the long, non-EU line of course), racing upstairs and checking in our nice bottles of organic Israeli wine that we thought it would be nice to bring home (the last time I’ll be buying duty free liquor I think), and arriving at the gate just in time to board (but luckily we had had our fix of Heathrow shopping on the way through 2 weeks ago, so I didn’t have to miss out too much and Love Actually was one of the Video on Demand movies which always makes me feel better about Heathrow… and I did have time to buy a few Mars bars, which are the key to travelling in the UK — and yes, they are very different from US Mars bars!!).

Mitzy seems quite suspicious, but hopefully she’ll forgive our long absence and remember us soon. Time to dowload all the email, open up the piles of bills and belated holiday wishes, take a long hot shower, and get ready to catch up on everything we missed.
