No Place Like Home X - Back to Buenos Aires

Things in Argentina do not go as planned.

It was raining hard in the morning when I woke up; my bedclothes were damp from sweating off most of the cold. I went to breakfast, packed and took a last look from my room at the spume rising from the Garganta del Diablo.

When I got to the airport at Puerto IguazĂș the ticket agent genially told me my flight had been cancelled and my new flight was leaving half an hour earlier. I couldn't complain, but I was wondering when they would have told me had I arrived late.

The plane scheduled to depart half an hour earlier departed half an hour late. Of course.

I knew I was still having sinus problems as we descended and it felt like my eyeballs were trying to jump out of their sockets. We descended, almost landed and suddenly rose again. The pilot made an announcement as the plane circled and people started laughing. It seems there was a dog on the runway.
