When we landed in Atlanta, we went through immigration that was backed up. The guy at immigration said we wouldn’t make our flight. Apparently, our seats had been given away 10 minutes prior to boarding. After an incident with Muriel on the escalator, Janel went to the help desk. In the meantime, we took the walking sidewalk to concourse B to see the jungle artwork. The seats there were extra comfortable and Muriel put up her knee.
We walked to our gate to get seat assignments. When we boarded, our seats were in the very back, rows 32 and 33. When we landed in Minneapolis it was 14F and I could see my breath. Then we boarded a very large and under booked plane. Many of the people were seated in the back with about 90 available seats in front of us.
We arrived in Bismarck; many of us were ready to go back to Ecuador since it had been 60F the entire time. Here is was 28F. We were sad our journey had ended, but glad to have made new friends in Ecuador.
