Written on the airplane

It's 12:50 a.m. Alabama time, 3:50 a.m. Chile time. We're about halfway there.

It was a beautiful warm sunny day when we left from Alabama. The perfect day to help our bodies transition from winter weather to the summer weather that we will meet when we reach Santiago.

Our flight from Birmingham, Alabama to Atlanta, Georgia took thirty minutes and went very smooth. We boarded the flight at Atlanta a bit late, but we were not the last people on the plane, because we forgot this time that Atlanta is an hour ahead!

I was tired and fell asleep for a little while on Armando's shoulder after we got on the plane. We are sitting in a three seat row at the back of the plane but nobody is in the third seat which is nice. You do feel the movements of the plane more on the back of the plane

We had some confusion at Atlanta airport trying to find the International terminal from where we were at, we did eventually find it! We were not the only people that had problems with that. Later, we saw some people who we had seen earlier and the lady said, We should have followed you! We went outside the airport security area and had to come back through and I had just bought some things and they took them away from me!

I will close for now and write you more when we are in Chile.

Take care of yourselves until I return!


Yep, that's me typing this message! :)

It's good to hear you are in Santiago safe and sound. I know you are really tired. Take your time, rest up, relax and begin the most wonderful trip. I'm so happy for both you and Armando.

Confusion at Atlanta airport - HMMMMM - why does that not surprise me. In all my travels I had more confusion there than anywhere - LAX included!

You two be safe and have a wonderful visit. Blessings
