Customized

Kish and I learned a valuable lesson today.  If you are traveling to Canada and can’t get a direct flight — which is the standard reality if you are flying from Columbus — make sure your transfer is in the U.S.

IMG_20140618_135754Why?  Because if you have to go through Customs as part of the transfer, forget it.  We’re on our way to Montreal through Toronto, and we encountered (1) a walk of at least three miles from plane to Customs and then to security, (2) a misdirection by airport officials that sent us to an even longer security line, (3) a security team even less motivated tO move people through with lightning speed than the TSA, and (4) a hyper-efficient flight crew that gave away our seats and closed the doors even though we arrived at the gate 10 minutes before departure time.

Fortunately,  there are frequent flights from Toronto to Montreal, and we’re on a 3 o’clock flight.  So, for now, we’re cooling our heels in the Great White North.  Hey look!  They’ve got Canadian t-shirts!

  1. Bob,

    Thanks for the head’s up about changing planes in Canada. Will remember that. Luckily, I’m going FRI via LGA. Couldn’t go until FRI, because of Mike Trout Albert Pujols tickets tomorrow.

    Bride’s some sort of a penelist tomorrow.

    Figured you’d be there.
