the packing star in action ;)
The day arrived and it was time to leave the farm. We would spend Thanksgiving in another city and attend a wedding near Detroit. Also our flights to Peru would depart from Detroit, so it made sense to move over there.

It was really early when we started to get ready. The big question was, would all the suitcases fit in the jeep? Eric took care about that. He's a start packing. Not only regarding his bag, but also fitting everything in the jeep. He succeeded with just a small incident. The back window of his jeep cracked, ouch! But besides that everything worked fine.

We were ready to leave and rechecked that everything was ok in the house. And since I know it would be a long drive I checked my work email for last time and to be honest also my TB account, haha.

Until the night before I was flying to New Orleans - already made arrangements for meeting a friend - but I just got an email from the customer I was suppossed to meet saying he and his partners wouldn't be able to do it. Nooooo, I sent an email to my boss asking him for directions about what to do and gave him Eric's number... Before leaving I took the last pics of the farm and then we started moving. Before starting our way we had to make a couple of quick stops, including getting tape to fix the window. Haha, thinking tape fixes everything is worldwide, haha.

In our way Eric got a call from a stranger, haha. It was my boss, just to let me know the New Orleans' plans were cancelled. And now I have to let my friend now and I don't have a phone or internet connection :( well, 4 hours later we arrived to Detroit. Before going to our final destination Eric and I would stay in Detroit for a couple of hours. What for? It was for my surprise. The one I discovered just 1 day before even though it was in front of my nose everyday. Everytime I went through the kitchen I was able to see it. They were hanging on the refrigerator. Well, was what that? Tickets to my 1st Hockey game!!!!
