Just landed in Belfast and am pleasantly surprised by the good weather. The pilot described it as a balmy 12 degrees as we appraoched from just above Port Patrick in Scotland! We came into the International Airport out on the shores of Lough Neagh. It was a ghost of itself from just few years ago – all the business users fly straight to the smaller, but more convenient. Of course, I didn’t know the taxi driver, but he was on first name terms with good number of my extended family! Ah, it’s good to be ‘home’!
