I HAVE MISSED MY FLIGHT!

I repeat. I missed my flight yesterday morning, because I waited for my mum's friend to take us to the airport at 5am. He didnt show, so i had to lug my case onto public transport - ie, a rickety tiny bus that wouldn't even pass an MOT and raced (sort of) to the taxi rank. We reached the check in desk 5 minutes after it closed. And after fruitless pleading to officials who uncharacteristically didn't ask for a bribe, I found myself making overly expensive mobile calls to England (yes, using Roaming) where I have now managed to secure a flight for monday AT A COST OF 600 (unbudgeted for) pounds.

This isnt good.

So I have just printed off my E-receipt and am going back to my mum's to re-pack.

Oh well.

I am not as mad as I should be. I will say this though, with all the poverty out here, one thing allows many of those i have met to remain positive - faith, with most saying; "Every dissapointment is a blessing."

So it's been a strange 'holiday'.
