The baggage conveyor was broken, and the computer system was down…so it was not a smooth start. When i finally checked in my bag they told me I had no seat. I was put on standby, and told that at 10:20 I’d get a seat for the 11:00 flight. So….that left very little time to go through security
Look at this line…6 rows deep, leading to another room with more lines. Nobody was interested in helping…they just pointed us to the end of the line. I spoke up and got the attention of someone who looked official, and got to the front of the line (along with two others who were in a similar predicament). I got flagged to do an xray scan, and that was a mess…i had no i was supposed to do.
With less than 10 minutes to spare, i was running through the airport toward thegate, at the far end. I can say that i have never run through a duty free shop before. Boy this airport was not easy to navigate. I got to the gate, and it was empty. Some people behind me were running and crying. Nowhere did it say the flight was delayed, and i was cutting it close.
I slept a lot on the plane!
I am now back in Canada! It has been a great adventure, and a very memorable month. Thanks to all who have been following along, and to those who have been in touch wih me this month. Thanks to all my friends who I got to visit and reconnect with. Thanks to the choir who arranged incredible performance opportunities.
