A Shaky Start

Mar 5, 2012 6:45 PM
The trip got off to a shaky start. I was late as several things didn’t go as planned this morning. By the time we got our bags weighed and the weight distributed we were even later. At the airport it got worse as we had to give up two bags. I will have words to say to Max, our travel agent because he assured me we could take two bags each. Hated to leave all the things we had packed for the school!. We had to take apart 4 bags and pare it down to two. Ugh! Good thing we still had some time or this would have been a disaster.

On the plus side we had a few minutes to grab a bite to eat. Jean was hungry. And better yet we have good seats. We are in the three in the middle and the one inbetween is empty so we can spread out. We fly straight to London so are on this flight for 8 hours.

So the time says middle of the night but London time is mid morning 10:45. Hopefully we can get back to sleep. On both flights we have been able to stretch out over three seats and get somewhat comfortable. Most unusual! It was nice to have only a short layover, even though the London airport is a fun one to both shop and to watch people. I am enjoying hearing the Ugandan accent from some of the travellers on this flight. Only about 8 hours and we will be there with Badru waiting for us. He is such a dear.
