Well, we didn't quite make it to Amsterdam yet. There was a problem with the plane in Birmingham for our flight to Detroit. There was something wrong with the power in the plane and they had to wait an hour for the mechanic to show up. Our layover in Detroit was only an hour, so we would have missed our flight. We are now spending the night in a Holiday Inn near the airport in Birmingham (on NorthWest's dime) and will fly out tomorrow morning. Tonight we are going to order room service and then maybe go hang out at the pool.
Hopefully the trip will run smoother tomorrow.
