No pictures to show for it, but we made the long journey here:
- 26.5 total hours of travel = 15 hours on airplanes, 2.5 hours in automobiles, 9 hours in airports. Left James’s parents home Thursday at noon and were in our hotel room at 11 PM Friday.
- All 6 bags made it… even after all the chaos of bus loading and cattle herding 70 teachers and families to the hotel, they still all made it. yay!
- We got the long-awaited airplane “bassinet” for JT, in the bulkhead, on the 13 hour flight. Seriously, that may have saved our marriage.
- JT slept about 5 hours of the 13 hour flight, in 45 min – 1 hour chunks. He flirted with ALL the girls, and was referred to as “the good baby that did NOT cry”.
- The airplane food wasn’t half bad, especially the full size Klondike bars in the middle of the night.
- We met a ton of other teachers and shared all our bits of information, to we know a little more.
- 6 bags + 3 carry ons + baby = challenge.
- There is a chance they make the customs part of the airport 100′ to help weed out the trouble makers.
- James had to get his eyeball scanned so we could get into the country.
- JT and I only have a 30 day tourist visa. If we don’t get residency visas in time, we have to leave the country and come back. Suggestions on where to go?
