Yesterday was a full day of traveling. We woke up to a snow covered Nanchang, which resulted in standstill traffic. We were told instead of our 11 am departure from the hotel, we would leave at 9:30. That gave us ten minutes to pack suitcases and prepare the babies for travel. A normal hour trip to the airport dragged into almost three. We did make it just in time to catch our flight.
Security was a nightmare. You do not go through as a family. You go individually. Ms. A went first and was frisked. Then Hubby with Dragon. He was told to hand her over and she was patted down as well. I was watching all this behind the yellow line until they called me through. I was so happy when I could get Dragon back in my arms. During the security check, Ms.A was waiting patiently for us while people were standing right in front of her taking her photo. I didn’t mind when they would ask, but this was a little extreme. When I finally reached her, I quickly turned her around and blocked the photographers.
The plane ride went unbelievably well. We walked right to the gate and walked right on. Dragon played a bit and then went to sleep. She was a trooper!
Ms. A is doing spectacular. I told her that I could take her anywhere!
