Our system for his return is for me to wait for his call from the airport before I even leave the house. My house is only 15 minutes from the airport. This is one of the key elements of finding a house no matter which country we are in- how close to the airport can we get?
When living in Ghana, we lived very close. In fact, the way we found out if a plane had arrived was to simply stand on the roof of our house and look for the landing plane.
"Okay KLM has arrived- let's jump in the van!"
"Sorry don't see Lufthansa yet- maybe there has been some delay"
Here in Washington State, we are 15 minutes away (driving). I have to actually check online to see if the flight has landed. Whether it lands or not, I patiently wait for the 'call'- the one which says, "Okay, I've cleared customs and immigration....start driving and meet me at the curb"....no standing at the escalator waiting for him to surface....no parking and 'wasting' 3 dollars (his words, not mine)....just picking up at the curb....and then once he is in the van all is right with the world.
