Where I stayed
Airplane from Bogota to Santiago
It seems that I was just on a vacation and here I am again - battling the airlines. It was a long day of flying...from Albany to Dulles, Dulles to Bogota, Columbia and Bogota to Santiago Chile. I will have to leave a longer description for tomorrow or some other day but the notable events were the check-in attendant in Albany telling me that I had to pay for my checked bag because it was a domestic flight to Dulles and that I would have to pick up my bag there and check-in to my subsequent airline Avianca at Dulles. I said I never had to do this before. He didn't tell me but he worked it out somehow and didn't charge me extra and even managed to check my bag on to Santiago.
On the last leg of my journey I sat next to a very interesting fellow travel junkie who was traveling with her 21-year old daughter. The mother's name was Ghita and we had a nice chat until after midnight when she said we ought to get some sleep.
