Stuck in Aruba

"Sprwaled on the floor, a child plays with a toy in a market stand in downtown Oranjestad, Aruba Monday afternoon."

Ugh. My luck with flights this year have been anything but smooth sailing flying.

Again, I am stranded. This time not on the plane thankfully(Unlike last time). Instead, I am sitting on a dirty, uncomfortable floor trying to not twitch or breathe so I can hold this weak, free Internet signal.

I was scheduled to depart at 7:50 a.m. on an American Airlines flight. Well, after five security check points, I found myself sitting quietly on the plane.

Fast-forward an hour. We were told to deplane. Brilliant.

So another hour ticks by. This time we were told to head to another gate at the end of the airport. At this point, I am thinking, "Awesome, maybe just be delayed two hours."

Well, my optimism didn't last long. At 11:00 a.m., we were told that we would be maybe departing at 4:00 p.m.

Alas, I am stuck here in Aruba. To burn the time I've been trying to tone the photos I've shot and listen to some Jim Gaffigan to keep me sane.
