Sticky as maple syrup
Well I am back. In the last post we blamed Canada for basically everything, but truth be told Canada is a great country. But I do have a long "blame list", so let's start:
We flew out from Tel Aviv with KLM, which probably stands for: Killing Leisure Masters. The flight was on time but that was about it. First of all, they set us in separate seats (yes, the tickets were ordered together), the crew was unpleasant and the food wasn't all that. But let me give an example for the crew's "helpful" demeanor. This one sided conversation was held between a KLM stewart and, well himself:
"Madam, the seat-belts go over the blanket, madam over the blanket. We need to see that you actually fastened them (because we all are so infantile and not trust worthy), Madam, the seat-belts go over the blanket, no. First the seat-belt than the blanket. Madam, the seat-belts go over the blanket... This went on for at least 7 minutes. Any way, the flight wasn't the best ever. Flying back was even worst, we flew with Alitalia. Now the Italian are know for at least three good things: Design, ice cream and coffee. So, when you get a brow liquid in an Italian air lines and call it coffee well that is a slap in the face for all Italians out there. The plane was, for lack of better words, old. One big screen was showing a movie (chosen by the airline of course) for every 5 rows of seats. 5 channels of radio with mostly Italian shows and all the magazines, You guessed it right, only in Italian. Let's just say our flying experience wasn't a good one.
We can still blame Canada for a few things too like, really bad coffee, the non existence of free wireless networks etc. But I choose not too. Canada was great. Great people, great food, great culture, simply great.
So as strange as it will sound coming from me, I came back to amazing coffee, free wireless everywhere, even better food and my daughters of course. But still there is one blame, and that's on us. For not learning more from places like Canada, as for how to treat each other with curtsy and respect.
