Arrived in Bucharest!

Hey everyone, just wanted to let everyone know we made it to Romania. It was a LONG trip. We missed our first flight to London, (because of our delay in San Antonio) which turned out to be a good thing. We would have been on a packed Boeing 747 to London, but instead we were on a 777
