Lost and forgotten

As usual, need to get back to some huge family gathering. I sent my dad the following email yesterday afternoon. I thought he might be amused.

They lost my clothes!

Well, not really but the plane was really tiny and apparently all the luggage didn’t fit. It probably didn’t help that I was one of the last people to check in and got to the gate 3 minutes before they started boarding.

I have to wait until tomorrow to get clean chonis and stuff. At least I have my toothbrush and camera. I just had clothes in the suitcase, I guess it’s not that bad. The worst thing isn’t that it happened, but I felt that it might happen and thought to myself that I should pack a pair of chonis, clean socks, bra and tshirt in my carryon bag in case this happened. But I didn’t. D’oh!

As with all my travels, I’m always doing things at the last minute. It was about 11 when I got to the airport and I had a 12:40 flight. Oops.

The plane really was tiny. I don’t think it fit more than 60 or 70 people. I’m short, but even I felt like the ceiling was way too low. The aisle was narrow and one side was one seat and the other two seats. I seriously thought I was going to have some sort of panic attack because I hate tiny, enclosed spaces. But I survived and took a nap with Ozo, the monkey, as my pillow.

My clothes arrived earlier than I expected at 2:30 am today. I opened the door to the room where I was staying with my tia Angeles and found my suitcase. Cool. Clean clothes!

I didn’t tell my dad that I was more upset about forgetting to bring my 256 mb memory stick for my camera. It’s at home in my laptop. All I have is a small 16 mb memory stick. I can take 24 pictures. I’ll try to make them good.

  1. yay! i’m glad you got your suitcase 🙂 heehee, that plane is about the same size as the planes I fly in! so I can relate to how claustrophobic you must have felt. Can’t wait to see which pictures make the final cut, hope you’re having a good time.

  2. I believe that I would of panicked more because of the memory card instead of the plane. LOL I’ve been on a couple of those two engine planes where like 15 people fit and you feel EVERYTHING. Not good, but statistically speaking i’ll get hit by a car before something ever happens to me in a plane.

    Being in your situation i’d be looking for a place to buy another memory card. 🙂
    It’ll certainly be interesting to see which pictures make the cut.
