“Travels to a Different Time”: 15March2004: Getting to Costa Rica from Toronto

Up at 03:00 for an early morning flight. Insane. Andrew, highly motivated was up in in a flash ready to go. The limo arrived 7 minutes early which is much better than 25 minutes early. Due to an ice storm the driver reused to climb the icy steps for the bags. I managed to throw some salt on the ice and we sped off in the damp grey gloom. Check in was smooth except for the fact that Fotini’s bag was 5 kilos overweight so she had to transfer 5 kilos of luggage into Andrew’s bag. I hope the pilots have more intelligence than the check in crew. The weight is the same in total! So many groggy people about waiting at the airport Tim Horton’s to open up for a fix of coffee. The Skyservice breakfast was a boxed one with a processed chicken sandwich. It might have been turkey? Also some yogurt, orange juice, cheese and a granola bar and a tiny cup of tea in the cheapest possible plastic cup. Landed in a roller coaster ride of turbulence in Liberia.
