my flight
I arrived to the airport with plenty of time. I wanted to do it so, since I wasn't able to do the check in online. Well, I was an early bird, lol. I did the check in, chose a sit - always aisle to be able to go to the restrooms ;) , and had still lot of time to kill. I went through security and customs easily and was ready. Since I was flying in a budget airline (Spirit - I'm gonna write a review about this) without food, I'd eat something while I was waiting for the flight.

While I was walking through the corridors looking for my gate, I realized I'd miss the Pisco Sour Day!!! :( yes, it's not a joke, there is an official Pisco Sour Day: Feb's first Saturday - no kidding. Buuuu, no pisco but Bacardi would wait for me in Puerto Rico, hehe. I'd love to bring some pisco with me, but I just had a carry on and had to go through security in USA again.
my healthy dinner, lol
.. ok, I'd survive.

I got something for dinner before leaving, what did I get? Salad fruit and Inca Kola!!! haha, I didn't want to miss it for long, haha. I was enjoying my healthy meal while I was listening to my new toy - my pod - how have I been traveling without it? Well, since I didn't have it, it "forced" me to talk to almost everyone, haha. Anyway, having it doesn't mean, I'd stop talking to strangers - actually they are future friends :)

The flight was supposed to leave at 11:30pm, but it would be delayed. So good I had a long layover in Fort Lauderdale, otherwise I'd have missed my flight, which is not fun at all. Finally at midnight we started to board. I was wondering who would sit next to me... hopefully somebody friendly. But... I had the whole row of seats for myself, haha.
OMG! they were feeding me, haha
So I moved to the window to take a picture before leaving and stretch my legs, lol.

Then the flight attendants came offering snacks and drinks - actually selling. There were a girl and a Colombian girl. I told him I wouldn't get anything and then he came back with snacks and sodas, haha.  The Colombian guy has been in Lima quite a few time and loves my city and also the food. So he had a lot of things to ask. Since I had the 3 seats for myself, he decided to sit next to me and we were chatting most of the flight. I was supposed to get some sleep, but barely slept 1 1/2 hours, lol.
