Mercia at Dulles Airport,
Washington on Jan.20, 2008
before and after stowing
away her winter coat
aided by lady in the back
Harry and Barbara had driven
us from Conestoga to Dulles
but in their hurry they had
forgotten to take along M's coat

After some fifteen hours
in the cold air and gaining
several hours in time
we are in Joburg Airport
waiting for our connection
to Capetown.

We had to wait quite a while
and had ample opportunity
to look outside or to read.

By now it is after 18:00
and we even get some rain!

But finally we do take off
and view some cute videos
with safety instructions.

Equally important, the air hostess
serves drinks and a fine dinner!
