Kiev, Ukraine Oct. 2008: Arriving in Amsterdam Schipol International Amsterdam Netherlands (AMS) from Houston, TX (IAH)

25OCT08 Amsterdam Schipol International, Amsterdam Netherlands (AMS)

We touched down at about 11:23a on the Center runway. Excellent, as now we don't have far to go to our gate. In no time, we were at gate G4. We disembarked, checked the gate and headed to D5.

On our way there, I ran into my colleague who was on the original trip with us to Kiev. He had flown into London-Gatwick on the last Continental flight the day before. He then took a British Airways (BA) flight to Amsterdam. He hang out with us for a bit.

At the gate, there was a line so we went back to the Transfer Desk to check-in in. After a while we used the kiosk to do so and then headed back to the gate. Since it was only about noon, we headed to the KLM Crown Lounge. As our colleague did not have a Presidents Club card and we were not allowed any guests, he waited for us outside. We hung out there for a bit having a little breakfast.

We then headed back to the gate, got our boarding passes, bade goodbye to our colleague and boarded.
