My cousins Emz and Neldz and their families are back from their three-week long vacation to the Philippines. We picked them up at the airport two weeks ago. We booked a hotel room the day before their arrival so we won’t be in rush going to the airport early in the morning.
It was a cool damp morning and good thing it wasn’t raining because my husband and I were driving separate vehicles. He was driving my cousin’s pick up truck that they let us drove back to their house to save them parking fees at the airport, and I was the one driving our car. That was the very first time I drove to the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) airport and I was glad it wasn’t raining because I hate driving in the rain especially on busy roads going to the airport.
Korean Air’s arrival from Cebu, Philippines was 8:35 A.M. that Tuesday. So we gave it about an hour because baggage claim, immigration, and security checks can take long. We got there at about 9:40 A.M. I thought my cousins will be heading out any minute. According to the screens display of live flight status information at the arrivals area, they landed on time. (Hurray for Korean Air!) Since we knew that they’re already landed and assuming they were lined up for security check, I tried giving my cousin a ring and left a voicemail. A few minutes after she called me back saying they were still in line at the immigration area. Uh oh! My husband said it’ll be another hour or so before they’ll show up. He was right.
It was great to see my cousins and their families again. Emz and Neldz looked very tired. I know the feeling. 🙂
