We arrived at Makassar about at 10. After we got our bagages, we went straight to Pelita Air Service counter to check in. Actually, not straightaway but we asked once or two times about what we had to do if we wanted to go to Sorowako. Our tickets had been arranged by Bapak Maryanto. He was the director of YPS School.
When we checked in, as usual we had to weigh our bagages. What was unusual was, they weighed the passengers too together with the bagages and the bags that we brought to cabin. It was embarassing for women! Hey, age and weight were the two biggest secrets of women.
After checking in, we had to wait for an hour. While waiting, I looked around the waiting room and observed some people.
At last, we had to board to the airplane. Now I saw the plane that my friends talked about. Yeah, we would fly with a propeller airplane! Should we be worried because of that? Yamin told me that the plane was the same with interstate planes in US. Okay, so I didn't have to worry since Americans use it why don't Indonesian, right?
The plane served snack but in a big portion, one bun and 2 cakes. I had enough eat. Besides, in Garuda, Yamin brought snacks and drinks too. And he was very kind shared them with me.
