Tues 09.29.09 – Upon entering the airplane in Dallas a week ago Monday, my respiratory system was working fine, half way through the flight to London, my nose was running like a spigot and I was chilled. By Saturday, the runny nose and chills had deepened into a sore throat & cough. By Sunday, I could barely speak.
Sunday morning London time, I called American Airlines to see what they thought of someone traveling sick. After talking to a very nice agent named Teresa, we both determined that I should not get on a plane yesterday and fly back home, even though as of yesterday, I had no fever. Due to the vagaries of the Mileage Awards program, the only flight open for me to fly home is next Monday.
So, now I am in London for an extra week. The last two days have been, quite frankly, a bummer as I have been ensconced in my hotel room coughing away and napping. Between coughs and naps, I can hear London outside. My favorite city outside, me inside.
So, I present to you today’s photo, a view from my window. Bayswater was lovely this afternoon.
