Here we are sitting in Chicago waiting to board our plane to Hong Kong. The first leg on this adventure was not without drama. We started out in front of a kiosk which totally baffled two intelligent people until an attendant showed us we were trying to stuff our passports in the boarding pass slot. The fun continued when the stewardess told us we had to store our carry on bags and of course the overhead bins were filled with luggage that should have been checked. Then the best was saved for last, the passenger behind us who should have avoided the fruit bowl served with breakfast or at least taken beano before eating filled the plane with noxious fumes so I spent the entire plane ride with either a napkin across my face used as a mask or at one point I put my entire head in my purse. I have the feeling this is going to be a wild ride so hang on tight the roller coaster is getting ready to take off!
