Here I sit...

I am sitting in a Holiday Inn Express in Memphis, TN. I was flying from Chicago to Wichita with a plane change in Memphis. I knew there would be a problem. Because there was actually 25 min to get from one plane to the connections. The Plane from Chicago was on time. We left on time and we arrived on time. But when we got to Memphis, we sat on the tarmac for 25 minutes. We set down in Memphis at 18:45 and got to the gate at 19:08. My connection was to leave at 19:15. We arrived at gate B6 my connection was at gate C11. I knew the minute that I set foot on that concourse that I was not going to make that flight. But I had to try. Half way there I could see through the windows that the gangway had pulled away form the plane. So, I got a hotel voucher and meal vouchers and now I have time to update my journal. The experience of IML and Chicago will take a couple of day to put down. And there will be pictures to come....

This was not one of the better layovers that I have had. I went to bed early and slept like a log.

When I first knew I was going to be stuck, that is what I smelled in the air. But the later it got the more tired I got and just wanted to get home.... I guess I just had too much excitment in Chicago.
