Still Waiting...

We haven't quite figured out the editing of posts for the blog yet, so I can't correct Matt's iPhone issues. However, it will all be sorted out eventually.

We're sitting at the Barcardi bar, after having gone through airport security and check-in procedures. Check-in was slightly frustrating as the attendants were still setting up the booths. Also, we had our ridiculously heavy and awkward luggage with us. Eventually (in reality 10 minutes) we hobbled over to the IcelandicAir booth, and proceded to check in. Now armed with our boarding passes - and without our backpacks, we headed to security.

Security was "ridiculously easy" (as Matt just said to me). We stopped at the provided seating area, and double-checked our liquids, gels and aerosols for non-conforming behaviour. There was no one in line at the x-ray and metal detectors, and we split up to go through more efficiently. Matt made it through fine. I set off the alarm, as I forgot to take of my eagle belt buckle. I set off the alarm, and was asked what I forgot. I then flashed my "giant belt buckle" and was awarded with the "idiot stare" from the guards. Also, my laptop and coat caused the guards to pause, perhaps laughing at the minuteness of my mouse. Things passed through the xray machine; we got dressed again; and headed off to the express walkway. Which was really really fast... WHOOSH!

Now, as I said, we're sitting in the Barcardi bar. Matt's had two pints of Canadian (his last for a while), and I'm drinking a mojito. Also, we just devoured a plate of microwaved nachos at $13. Patiently waiting for flight. Watching a dude on a segway.
