Day 4 - Thursday 08/10/2010
Brussels, Belgium: Woke up and rushed to the airport for our departure. Customs was brutal and took away our carryons one of which we still have not received. We get on the airplane and it backs up and starts heading towards the runway. Within minutes we see that the plane once again unexpectedly stops. Here goes round 2! We all begin to wonder what the hold up is and then we are notified that it is THE exact same plane with the EXACT same problem. Liliya starts crying. The Indians next to us start yelling that we should join forces and protest taking the same plane. Natalie is sleeping. Veronica is excited about another free hotel stay in Brussels. After a really tense hour they announce the plane is departing in 10 min. We are still skeptical that this plane is going to make it but Praise God it did!
