I started some hot flushes, I thought maybe I was getting blasted from the air from the engines. I got more uncomfortable, and found my legs were shaking. My arms dropped to my side... someone (I learned later it was a good friend, Adam) grabbed my arm. I didn't know why he had, and turned to look at him. I saw some faces and didn't recognize anyone.
Suddenly I looked around; two Finnish soldiers were holding me up, and I was a good 60 meters away. I thought, "why has everyone gone over there?". Then I slowly came to and was given water. Adam had dragged me to the back of the crowd and the soldiers had walked me to the recovery area, which is where I came to.
Weird. My head hurts a bit. I've always wondered what it feels like to faint, and I guess I know, now, although I am embarrassed!
Hey I'm getting out of here in a few weeks for a 2-week break in Germany. Can't wait.
