Another airport, another lounge, another long day looking forward to another long airplane ride...oh well, it sounded like a good idea. Actually, I've paced this trip with deference to my age, and it seems to be working well so far, except for the horrible bronchitus which attacked me before I left. I actually almost met the 32 pound weight limit, only one pound over. Yesterday, I flew from Durango to Washington, DC, and am currently waiting for my KLM flight to Amsterdam where we connect to Nairobi. It's a loooong trip. I'm in sitting around in waiting mode, trying hard not to think too much. Audible books downloaded ✔. Kindle books downloaded ✔. Soothing music downloaded ✔ Comfortable clothes ✔. Travelling companion...oops. I find I'm missing my travelling companion of 45 years. But this is a travel agent study tour and I already met a couple of the agents going along, so travelling companions will appear in due time ✔. Now I just have to survive two 8+ hour flights and all the discomfort that entails.
