In Moscow now

Nothing is ever easy, and it certainly is an adventure...
We met up with the Snarrs in TO at the airport, no problem, Then when we went to check in, They informed us that we would not be allowed to fly today because we did not have transit visa's for Moscow... If I had a nickel for every time I heard that.. just that this time she was so adement, that even when I acked her to contact her supervisor, she was still obstinent and told us that it made no difference who we talked to, we were not getting on the plane. After slightly raising my voice, and sugesting that if she did not know what she was doing she should get someone that does... and that she is wrong and we are getting on that flight.. apparently julie says that I banged my hand down on the counter at that point.. Finally she got on the phone and after 5 minutes it was agreed that we would not need the visa's.. I m sure glad that we were traveling with the Snarrs because she was so obstinant that they would have just excepted her word and gone home... I am thinking that it's about time that something be done so that this problem stops happening over and over.
From there we had to walk for some time with all our bags to go through the US customs .. as we were walking, Teresa commented on how heave her hockey bag was.. then Bekah suggsted that if she was to flip it over so that the wheals were on the ground rather then up in the air, it would be much easier..
The next snag came when our flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. this ment that we would miss our conecting flight through JFK .. needless to say Delta was deeper into my bad books... Then some how they flight that was 1:55 min was compleated in less then an hour, and he made the termanil change quickle, and made the connection... So here we are in The moscow airport... 8 more hours and we will be on our way again... Bekah is just heading over to see the Somalians that are stranded in the airport here .
