We left Richmond, VA yesterday later than expected. Scheduled departure: 4h30, actual departure 5h15! Why? We start to taxi out to the runway, then the pilot comes on saying that there is a problem with a passenger being buckled in and we have to return to the gate. !!! Turns out some woman couldn't get her child to buckle up! They were in the back of the plane, we were closer to the front. The child was screaming hysterically. We were thinking maybe it was sick and thinking if the child does this all the way to Atlanta the other passengers are going to be going crazy!The flight attendant finally called the pilot and told him what was going on and he made the decision to put them off the plane. We were late into Atlanta and some people were going to miss their connection. But people were so relieved that they didn't have to listen to shrieking the whole way. Luckily, we had plenty of time for our continuing flight to Paris.
After we set up the studio, which is a living and working in space. We went to sleep for a couple hours. We got up and went shopping for dinner. Here are some of the things we bought and there is Traveling HiMonkey in the midst of the dinner fixings.
