And now a word about air travel...

Lufthansa is a German airline (duh...). No really, I mean it: a VERY German airline. The Germans have mastered gassy food. Lufthansa serves that food in large smelly portions with great frequency. It's so boring on a flight from Moscow to Boston or Boston to Moscow that you make the mistake of eating all this food just to have something to do. And if you choose to skip a meal? The flight attendant, doing her best rendition of my late (German) grandmother, gives you a disapproving look and insists that you take at least the cold food plate.

And another thing: also in true German fashion they don't splurge on padding for the seats. My butt is killing me today.
