Our flight was delayed coming out of Washington and we missed our connection to Lima, so we are spending a quick night in Bogotá before catching a 3:30am shuttle to the airport for a 5:30 flight. I must say Avianca / Taca was great about getting us a hotel and rebooking – very smooth as these things go.
I met John Lancaster in the lobby of our Hotel as we were checking in. John is a freelance writer for National Geographic. I remembered reading one of his articles a couple of months ago on Kazakhstan. He was on the same flight as us out of Washington and missed his connection as well. He is off to do some surfing and an article for Surfer’s Journal.
