Brad and I are currently enjoying some Ben and Jerry's ice cream and watching CNN during our 3 hour layover in Newark. Our first flight from Nashville to Newark was very smooth, and the weather so far has been Great! We were even able to see all the big buildings of NYC on our way in! Our flight to Lisbon will leave Newark at 8:20 PM local time, and we are scheduled to land in Lisbon at 8:20 AM local time. Fortunately, the flight time is only about 7-8 hours. It will be enough time to eat a late dinner and sleep the rest of the way. Not nearly as long or involved at the 5 flights to Vietnam! Our spirits are very high and we are really looking forward to our adventure and to seeing Christy!!! A quick shout out to Dad and Bonnie for letting us borrow their netbook. So tiny and so useful!!!
