Here I sit at the Sheraton Hotel at Frankfurt Airport hung over with jet lag and lack of sleep (sadly, I’ve never mastered the fine art of sleeping on planes). I departed Kuwait on time at 1:15 am local time and landed in Frankfurt at precisely 5:00 am. I arrived at the front desk at the Sheraton Hotel at 5:40 am and was politely told that, yes, they do have my room reservation but that “Sorry Sir but there is no room at the inn at this hour”. Sigh! I waited three hours until 8:40 am at which time I was finally assigned a room and by 9:15 am I was lying in bed enjoying some badly needed rest! After a fine lunch, I recovered enough strength to log in and complete this posting.
I took this photo at 12:15 am at Kuwait International Airport as I was making my way to Gate 4 for my Lufthansa Flight 637. I was sooooo tired, my head was pointing down but somehow I managed to glance upwards and saw these remarkable pictures made by Kuwaiti children and placed on display in the departure hall. I managed to snap pictures of the two best artworks.
