the non-non-stop flight

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007

we’re sitting on the runway in Freeport, Sierra Leone.

stopped here to pick up more passengers before we continue on to London. (i think there were only five other people with me on this 45 minute flight from Monrovia, Liberia.)

by the way, we missed the runway on the first landing attempt. rather than land at the top of a jungle or the bottom of the Atlantic, the pilot decided to pull up at the last second and circle around for another try. i’m glad he did that, as i would prefer not to crash. but don’t they know that i’m trying to get back to LA and this sort of flying is holding me up?
