All smiles in the departure gate with no knowledge of the Heathrow baggage belt disaster. One bag made it to New York while two bags were left behind. One bag has just made a happy reunion (hopefully missing bag 2 will turn up soon). This has meant emergency holiday shopping of pants, t-shirts and shorts in New York. Shopping for clothes when you only have one pair of pants and the temperature has hit 30c is not a fun shopping experience. I may only have 2 pairs of pants to choose from but I have been reunited with my camera accessories!
