Chances in a Million

What are the chances that you will lose your luggage twice: departure and arrival?  As it turned out my nieces were lucky.  And here’s the Facebook message: 
Well, if you want to lose your baggage twice in one trip, fly with American Airlines. Pff. 
One has to have tremendous sense of humour when you are travelling.  Thank goodness for Facebook messages: 
Heading home! In 9 hours…guess we will get to know this airport really well 
In Dallas, Almost home! — at DFW Airport Terminal D Zone 6. 
In Dallas finding cowboys – and waiting for flight 4 out of 4 to get hooome!! Bag is lost in translation though. Never mumble rude things about your baggage check in lady! She has power!!!! 
At home, at last! Now it all seems like a dream. 
Gotta love a welcome home food!! 
First day home and I’m already power washing the driveway.. 
And the best message is: 
Sometimes you just miss your mom!! Xoxo 
I feel so happy for the girls and the millions of youth who had joined the WYD 2013 pilgrimage in Brazil. 
Looking at the pictures, I can sense and imagine the tremendous excitement as being “One Bread, One Body” song with all of the pilgrims.  
This is the biggest slumber party ever, sleeping on the beach, waiting for the final day.  Better than Woodstock days. 
 This experience with the youth will certainly go down in history in our clan.  There will be stories to be told and I cannot wait to hear their stories.

Sunrise at Copacabana beach greeted my two nieces together with 3 million youth waiting for the finale of World Youth Day at Rio de Janiero.
 
 
 

And they are off…

And they are off. 
 My two nieces are off to Brazil to attend World Youth Day. 
The girls are so good in informing the whole family with their activities in Facebook to keep us calm. 
The first message was:  “We have arrived, so where’s or luggage!” 
Oh dear Lord, is this a sign of what is yet to come?  We are such a worry wart here in Canada.  In the meantime while they are waiting for their luggages that took forever to find, the girls have flooded the Facebook with pictures.  
The second message was: “We are accosted by weird people”  
I took a look at the picture and replied back: “Don’t worry, he has no brain.  The man behind him has no courage anyway and the lady behind them doesn’t have a dog whose bark could kill.”  
The Wizard of Oz
 Good times, good times.  Still no luggage.  I wonder where they got those clothes? 
Well, if they are not worried; why should we. 
Eventually, the luggages came and the first thing they put was their bathing suit. 
Off to the beach.
Hands down
They are enjoying life and tomorrow, June 23, World Youth Day will officially start and ends on June 28.  Now that will be serious business and let’s see what messages we will receive.
