Ya’ Nevah Know
Things can be going smoothly and then someone throws a wrench into the works. We had a direct flight reserved a long time in advance and even our boarding passes the day before but when we got to the airport, plenty early, there was no sign of our flight on the boards. It had been cancelled due to strikes! This happened during the night. The route is one that is subcontracted but the major company did a fairly good job of making the rearrangements, telephoning to get the last two seats on a connecting flight which was provided by the company shown above with which we had never flown before. It was very tight connection but they sent a driver and vehicle for the terminal change. Fortunately I stopped when I saw the name of our destination being held up instead of rushing headlong into the airport to try to find the shuttle. When it came time to board, there was a problem with a scribble on our passes, an additional piece of paper seemed to missing. From now on when I see a scribble on my boarding pass, I am going to ask what it means. I remember being singled out for special treatment previously, based on a scribble. Our suitcases didn’t make the connection but they will be delivered this morning. So the competent good will actions of some made up for actions we perceived as inconsiderate by others.
In the pocket literature on this plane (which ordinarily doesn’t fly this route) there was an article on Copenhagen, mentioning a neighborhood called Christiania. It only said it was an alternative community so my curiosity was whetted. Here is a link:
The article in French was not the same as this one in English. I like the idea of functioning by consensus and simple laws.
Meanwhile I have been waiting for a truck to brush my hair.
P.S. I found a comb and the suitcases have arrived.
