amsterdam/london: arriving in Amsterdam Schipol International, Amsterdam Netherlands (AMS) from Houston Intercontinental. Houston TX (IAH)

1NOV08 Amsterdam Schipol International, Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS)

We touched down at about 10:30a and then taxied into the gate. It was not too long of a taxi, but long enough. We basically taxied from Terminal B to G, almost the length of the airport.

It was great as I got a chance to see a few airplanes:

Singapore Airlines (SQ) Boeing 777

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL) Boeing 777

openskies (operated by British Airways)

Continental Airlines (CO) Boeing 767-400ER

At the gate, I disembarked and waited for my colleagues, but I must have missed them as everyone was off the plane and I had not seen them at all. I left and headed for the Immigration area near Terminal F.

When I got there, I saw them in the line. They went through security before me, so I missed them again. I did see them again though at the train ticket counter. I got my ticket into the city for 6.40 EUR for a Weekend return (it used to be 5.60 EUR), bade them goodbye and headed to the ticket counter to get an airline ticket for my journey to London tomorrow. Once I was done with that, I then headed back to the train station for the next train to Schipol which was waiting on the track. In a minute, it departed.
