At the Athens Airport. Flying to Amsterdam-Curacao-Port of Spain.

Siri has become really good at understanding me. Some time ago when I last tried it, I had to try really hard to fake my accent. Now it just works. And, WOW!, it can also transcribe greek!

I’m at the Schiphol Airport. It’s been some years since I’ve been in Amsterdam, and even then I don’t think I spent a lot of time at the airport. Today I have 5 hours to spend here, and I have to say, it’s OK, but it’s not the best airport to spend time, either. Few plugs, no USB plugs, not too many stores, compared to other international airports. Oh. And the airport Internet sucks.
