The start of our trip.
Departure from Huntsville toward Chicago. Got an all day lay over in Chicago because there is only one flght to Chicago from Huntsville.
All went well other than the American Airlines agent had to physically complete the baggage connection between Paris and Malta. This meant that he had to hand write the ultimate destination. I don' think he has ever heard of Malta.

Wish I'd thought to get a photo. My high was taken down a little when Jordan informed me how rusty my Indonesian sounded - gimme a break kid! ;) Back to the hotel & we dealt with the harsh reality of power shopping. Of to ...
