Oman: bag of rocks

The weight and number of April’s cases had definitely increased as I attempted to lift them onto the trolley at 4.30 this morning. The savings made from importing vast quantities of dates and rocks into the United States will almost certainly be offset by the excess baggage charges that will probably be incurred on the internal flight. Good job she didn’t take the bits of tree.

The airport was virtually empty and the Qatar check-in staff didn’t seem to be in much of a hurry. Unlike the gentleman that took time from looking at his watch to ‘assist’ April and Gail with their case by slamming it with great force onto the conveyor belt. I guess he believed this would hasten the aircraft’s departure.

We waved them goodbye as they disappeared into immigration knowing that they had had a wonderful time in Oman.
