We landed in ATL on schedule! A FIRST! We knew we had a very short layover and we had to get all the way from Terminal C to Terminal A, which is like going from one side of Chicago to the other in 5-o'clock traffic, for an international flight in a little over an hour. Miracles can happen though.

So we got on the train thing and I started thinking "I can't believe we're making such good time. We might be able to grab some food before we leave.", right. Wrong! We get to Gate A and there's maybe 30 minutes to spare. We just sat down and the friggin gate change! O mierda! So here we go. To another gate, still in Terminal C at least. And how many time did we gate hop in total? 4! Yep, 4 times. Did we get dinner? Nope.

I was steaming because I hate that kind of crap. If the plane is supposed to leave from a specific gate at a specific time then it should. Toni was a shining star though, she wasn't frustrated or anything. Maybe I should learn from the master. There is some good news...the plane was only 35 minutes late leaving ATL. 

On to Quito!

Edit: I forgot to tell you that Toni and I will both be editing this blog since I suck at keeping it up to date. I'm going to start signing all my posts so you don't get confused...like you would. Ha!
