Uruguay, August 2008

We slip the surly bonds again. No checklists, no clearance required, pain-free fueling ... you guessed it, we're on a commercial flight. Uneventful and we even get some sleep, something I never managed to do as co-pilot, before arriving in Buenos Aires for a long layover.

Luck is with us as she often is. We fall asleep in the airport since the layover is extended, and wake up groggy but just in time to catch the last sentence of a message saying that we must switch airports to take the hop across Rio Plata. How great to be back!

Finally they're back. Did they bring my fuel servo? When will we fly again? Did they miss me?
