The Swiss Front 2016
Stranded in Bruxelles
We boarded the plane in Accra at 22:00, knowing that we will have a long wait in Bruxelles. This was my mistake by booking the afternoon flight to Zürich. Nevertheless we were optimistic to spend the time
with Sight-Seeing and Shopping (or better eating & drinking). After clearing security and immigration in Bruxelles, I discovered that I left a lot of items behind at the security check point and it
took a while to backtrack and to claim our missing belongings! We also realised that we where without any cash and looked for an ATM. Finally we found one but it would not accept my Postcard.
This happened also before in Accra. I tried MasterCard. Same disappointing result! Now we were frantically counting our last reserves and concluded that a Hop-ON-Hop-OFF Tour would be possible
and maybe a beer with a sandwich. Coming out of the airport terminal, a very chilly wind with an icy rain greeted us. After all it was Winter! Freezing and wet we located the
Tour Bus and Hopped-ON and finished the tour in one go. No hopping-OFF, too cold! We looked for a cheap place to get our beer and sandwich and we found it after some shivering around.
After a 4 hours wait we could board our plane to ZÃ¼rich and the world was in order again!
