My flights went very smoothly, leaving and arriving on time. Because I had splurged and purchased seats with more leg room, the journey was also very comfortable. The flights were not crowded, and I had no one sitting next to me. Passing through immigration and customs in Houston was also a snap. I did have a bit of a line to pass back through security, but the whole process did not take much more than a half hour. Once again I had a long layover in Houston, but I had another free pass for the United Club, and I was able to pass the hours comfortably. It was fortunate that I did not leave a day or two earlier. I missed the disastrous flooding which hit Houston at the beginning of the week. As we were landing I could see evidence of the heavy rains which had hit the city. When I arrived in Cleveland the temperature was close to 70 degrees.
It was a gray, misty morning when I left Mexico City.
