Monday, December 25th my sister Ilona would arrive in Austin. She had promised me for so long and finally the day had come. Finally! I could hardly wait to spend some time with her.
Upon arrival at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, she tells us she almost didn’t make it due to a misunderstanding concerning her luggage. At Washington, she wasn’t supposed to pick it up. For some reason she misunderstood and took the “baggage claim” exit. She quickly realized she was on the wrong side of the gate and explained her situation to the attendant who was so nice to let her back in using the fast lane. There’s no time to waste when you have a connecting flight to catch!
Arriving home, she opened her luggage and, man, it was bulging with Belgian and German goodies! We thought we were in HEAVEN! The best part, though, was that she was here for 7 days!
