Now feeling refreshed after several hours sleep it was a l..o..n..g day yesterday. Up at 4.45am ( in UK time ) not getting to bed until around 4am. Anyway all went to plan and we are checked in the hotel.
I have to say I was very impressed by the check in facilities at Manchester airport. Very swift and efficient.
There were no inordinate delays anywhere really. The longest was probably the security at Atlanta where we entered the USA and changed flights but it was no longer than anyone would expect these days.
There is a seven hour time difference here so although it is early afternoon in the UK things are just waking up here on what looks like a cold and misty Sunday morning.
