I had hours to kill before my flight back to the UK at 7 p.m
I learned to my cost that although O'Hare has an enormous shopping mall in the domestic terminal, once you go through security in T5, the international terminal, there is absolutely sod all. You cannot even get a cup of coffee. There are about 3 tiny kiosks selling very sad shrinkwrapped sandwiches and bottled water, but that's it.(Well, there is an intermittent kiosk selling very expensive beer, too)
Thankfully I had a couple of books and a chocolate chip cookie, but had I known I would have stayed in the terminal I arrived into (T3, I think it was) for a lot longer!
The flight home was uneventful (which is, i think, what one looks for in a flight!)
I enjoyed watching the sunset
And then, a couple of hours later, the Sunrise.
It really was rather lovely.
And later, it was good to be home.
