Tracking Dimitris

On January 22nd, my partner left his family home in Athens, Greece, and flew to Frankfurt, Germany. When he left Greece, I was still asleep as Athens is seven hours ahead of our eastern standard time. However, when he left Frankfurt, the time difference had shrunk to six hours, meaning that I could start tracking him at 6:00, local time. When I looked at my favorite airline flight tracker,, I read that no information regarding the departure of his Lufthansa flight was available. I therefore called Lufthansa and learned that flight 482 was indeed in the air. I breathed a sign of relief as the flight from Frankfurt to Tampa was direct. The reason for my anxiety had been caused by the fact that he and I had an appointment at the immigration office in Tampa the next morning. We had been awaiting this appointment for months and knew how important it was to his becoming a legal resident of the United States. Well, his plane did arrive pretty much as scheduled. Therefore he had the time to come home, unpack, get a good night’s sleep so that he was fresh for the interview, which he passed with flying colors, which entitles him to receive his green card in about three weeks.
