London August 2008: Arriving in Houston-Intercontinental, Houston TX (IAH)

We touched down nicely and very quietly. We used the runway by Lee Road and did realize that there were doing some construction at the end of it as there was a lot of marl there. not sure what is going on.

We had a short taxi to the E Terminal where I disembarked after a greeting by the gate agent and also notification on where our bags were located in Customs.

Arriving at this time 12:42p quite early actually, is good as the Immigration Hall is clear. It took no time to clear and head down to the Customs Hall.

I saw a sign for Global Entry; one of my colleagues had just told me about this on Saturday when we both arrived in London. It is a new system for quicker entry in the U.S. Much like what they had a few years back I can't even remember what it was called back then. You can get details for the program at I took the details and headed out. I'll sign up later.

This was a tiring, but great trip.
