I arrived back in Atlanta last evening around 5pm. Once I collected my baggage and had my car dropped off, I began the little more than an hour drive back to Covington, GA. Once I got onto the highway, I knew I was back in GA…the traffic was slow and the roads were packed with rush hour traffic. But I couldn’t help but remember the roads and traffic in India and be a little more than grateful for even being able to have a car in such traffic.
Our trip home was a little eventful with challenges from flying “stand-by” but there was nothing over-the-top-major. We did have a little snag in Amsterdam when we checked in. Unknowingly, Brandon had scheduled his flight time for a later departure than ours. So we had to make some quick adjustments and try to get ours switched so we could all fly out together. We were able to make the adjustments. However, once we arrived at the gate a couple hours later, the lady working for KLM was not very happy with us citing that we had caused them major problems. She thought we had simply wanted to skip the first flight in hopes of getting better seating but this was not the case. After explaining a few things to her, she calmed down but one thing’s for sure, she was not a happy camper.
We eventually made our way back home and got through customs without any hiccup. I will make plans to write a more informational final blog detailing the trip and what I gathered from it next week, once I get readjusted to life here. I have many things to take care of this weekend, as well as I’m preaching two services at my church. Thanks so much for your prayers and support. Here are some of the pics from the last few days in Vijayawada.
