I just woke up after 12 hours of sleep. I landed yesterday I landed at Milano Malpensa at 11pm after almost 2 days of flights around the globe.

London Heathrow is the most paranoid airport ever. I missed my connecting flight because it took me 1 one hour and half to go through the security check: they asked me to remove the shoes, the laptop, the external USB drive, they they though I was bringing a gel somewhere in the handbag and asked me empty the bag. They couldn't spot it only looking at the contents of the bag so scanned each item separately: the "gel" was the Chocolate Fish. So I had to go with another flight, and instead of arriving at 4pm I landed 5 hours later.

Here is one very nice picture I took somewhere inside the departure lounge:


Out of 4 monitors, one with the BSOD and another one with an error message.

And other two pictures, one from my old house in Khandallah, on the day of departure, with rain, and the other from my window in Milano, today, with rain.

I will really miss the color of the sky even when it was raining.

You could have been a terrorist with a bomb shaped like the chocolate fish. Do they have somebody to taste food that could be a bomb?
