I am involuntarily celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at TXL/Berlin airport in Berlin, Germany. I am stuck here for most of the day because I missed my connection to Budapest, Hungary. It is a pretty depressing run down place. It feels like the European version of Jim Crow era public place – only the appropriate sign is missing “Germans Only…”
The only thing consoling my distress is the 40 Euro voucher that I got from Airberlin for my pain and suffering. That is about 8.88888 beers in an airport bar. My options are; make friends by buying a few pints for some random intimidating strangers or drink it all by myself… but than I might miss my connection again.
Until than, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
