Amsterdam Trip 2017. Day 8

SUN MAR 19 - Fly home day.  Amsterdam to Detroit to Charlotte.

Streetside crocus 

After breakfast we reversed our way into town: Metro to Centraal Station, train to the airport.  Our confused ticket counter dude in Charlotte had cancelled our return flight - they had no record of us.  Thanks!  But we got lucky, and they found us two seats for us.  Eventually we even managed to sit together.  

High winds at the airport closed all but one runway, so we took off over an hour late.  But we had a long layover planned at Detroit, so the only damage would be more seat time.  Bob ordered a beer in DTW, it was huge, mediocre, and cost $9.  Finally overcharged for something!  I felt better.  We made it the rest of the way home with no issues.

Where's the nearest coffeshop?
