(previously "Holly in Balad" and "Holly in Washington DC")
18 July 2009
Checked in, luggage out of my hands, mall food in my belly (manchuwok).
Gentleman at the US Airways counter an hour ago was very nice, apologetic there were no earlier flights and no First Class, but he did print me out a receipt and put me in the exit row on the long leg of the flight (aisle, my favorite).
Pictures from Qatar and the start of our flight to the states have been posted on Flickr.
