Day 9

Well today was just comminuted from yesterday because I only really slept an hour; but I’ll fix that later. We packed up and left our AirBnB and got into our cabs. I think our drive was auditioning for the voice because he seriously sang his entire conversation the whole time we drove to the airport. And I also why he is a cab driver and not a professional singer. We got to the airport and had no idea where to go; there were absolutely no signs regarding where we needed to be so we asked someone who worked there and her response was “oh yes you walk all the way down that corridor and then ask someone else” at first I thought she just wanted to get rid of us or had no idea what we were talking about but that wasn’t the case we found the boarding pass location. Of course we couldn’t go through an airport with out a problem; we got to security (where the wheels usually fall off) and Hanon got “randomly” selected or at least we thought so, but really she had bought a big decorative rock and they wouldn’t let her carry it on because they thought she was going to use it as a weapon. After we passed that fiasco we headed to wait at our gate. Of course we weren’t there 10 mins before some foreigner in a foreign country decided to get crazy with me. Long story short his wife took my sisters seat and I was trying to explain that to him and he got crazy and well let’s just say he sat back down.

 

Finally to the plane! It was a pretty big plane and completely full except for the seat next to me and my brother! Regardless it was still pretty uncomfortable with my back and all I wanted to do was sleep, but of course that wasn’t going to happen. Luckily the flight was only 2 hours. 

 

Well we landed and my sister and brother checked their bags so off to baggage claim we went. It’s different here in Europe the plane doesn’t drop you off in the terminal you have to take a bus to board and get off the plane to the terminal. We got to baggage claim and the conveyer was moving and people were getting their bag and then all of a sudden it stopped. No more bags! We waited for about 10 mins while my sister freaked out a little and then luckily the belt started again  and their came the last 3 bags.

 

We then drove home and immediately passed out! It was 8 am and we didn’t get up until 3pm... it was a much needed “cat nap”.

 

After waking up we all showered and headed to go exchange some more money except when we got there the lady said that the government had shut her down the day before. Her family has been exchanging money there for over 100 years; you could see in her eyes she was ready to cry over the entire situation.

 

After leaving not knowing what we were going to do for money because the banks closed at 3 and dont open again until Monday.

 

We decided to walk around downtown window shopping for when we could exchange money. We drove around the island a bit and then headed for dinner and home we were pretty tired.
