It was still dark when we arrived...
After around 6am we were getting closer to Houston. The flight attendant came with the breakfast, no more wine this time. Too early to drink, hehe. Although somewhere in the world it was already time for a drink ;)  I really needed a coffee if I wanted to stay awake during the rest of the day.

As we were in Business Class we left the plane first, sweet! That means I could have cleared customs asap, but I didn't. I waited for Osvaldo. It was time to go back to my "babysitter" duties. It didn't take us so long to clear customs. Our flight was the only one arriving at this time, so it was simple. When I was clearing customs, the agent just said: "Mmm, you come very often to the States..." hahaha.

Although Houston wasn't our final destination, we had to claim bags and recheck them.

Which also meant going through security again. OMG! Who told me to travel wearing boots? At least they were small ones, hehe. Well, fashion is fashion. You never know who you can meet in a plane or at the airport. By 8am we were ready, our bags were already checked and we were in our way to the gate. Neither of us was hungry, so we were walking around the stores, but not many of them were open, and then went straight to the gate. Our connection flight to New Orleans was scheduled for 10am, so we had plenty of time. Both of us were a bit sleepy. Osvaldo couldn't sleep much during the flight because he was surrounded by children, he felt as if he was in a kindergarten, haha.

He took a nap, while I was reading and just walking around the airport... well, it was time to board. I took a look and our next plane would be a really small one...
