Have you ever spent hours at the airport when you weren’t traveling? Well, I have. Last night, my friend Rob and I were on our way to pick up our friends from the airport a little after 8 pm when we got a call from Janell. She said that they called and said that they missed their flight from Houston and would not be coming in until 11:16 pm. In any other city, this wouldn’t be much of a problem.

With the traffic in Mexico City, however, we decided to just continue on to the airport. It would take us a long time to get home anyway, so we might as well go and spend some time in the airport. We arrived around 9 pm and had to wait for 2 and a half hours before they landed. We talked a lot, drank some Starbucks coffee (in the new sit-down Starbucks, woo hoo!), and got to know the airport really well (which is looking a lot better with all the new construction).
