The drive to Accra was fun. As I trekked south, everyone on the radio was talking about the US election. The polling had just started and there was an almost universal pull for Obama on the radio.
The flight home was 10 hours and 16 minutes on a mostly functional Boeing 767-300ER
I had the pleasure of sitting in 21G near the wing. It provided a fantastic view outside, but placed me next to the faulty exit sign/speaker combo. Every 2-10 seconds the light would flash and I would be greeted by a nice “ding.” To get the full experience, play the following video 308 times.
About two hours into the flight I noticed the nice spray paint job on the right engine and the thousands of miles of water in the background.
Meh, it’s the inside that counts. . .
