I’d have to check both of them. The bags weighed 41.4 kg (91 pounds) together. I knew I’d have excess. The limit is only 20 kg (44 pounds)! I had more than double the allowance! On some airlines, this would cost several hundred dollars.

She was also swathed head to foot in mosquito proof gear and so sweating so much she kept getting dehydrated. However by my ...
