Canary Wharf

A typical -in and out of London City- working day. Men in pinstripe suits gather early in the morning at Schiphol airport's D-pier. Always a gate with a terribly high number, like 46 or 48, hence a long walk from the passport checkpoint. Enter a KLM cityhopper wait half an hour, enjoy the safety procedure during taxying and then off she goes from Kaagbaan. One hour to check all the newspapers aboard. Steep landing at LCY, 5.5 degrees or more. Wait for the "Doors may be opened", say "Bye!" to the air hostesses and captain, hurry down to the DLR. Change at Canning Town to the Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf. For some of us on the plane this is a weekly trip or bi-weekly trip, go figure. For me it was a first to Canary Wharf, but probably the tenth time to LCY. It was a nice day, with an informative meeting in one of the large buildings out there.
