LIFE HAS ITS UPS AND DOWNS
After 15 hours of cumulative flight time and layovers, we made it to our hotel in Tel Aviv. I stowed my luggage in my room and boarded the elevator to join my companions in the lobby.
Just before level L the elevator stalled. In desperation I banged on the door.
“The technician’s on his way,” a serviceman told me. “But he’s stuck in traffic.”
I sank to the floor and played video games on my phone; grateful claustrophobia isn’t one of my problems.
An hour later, I was released from my 6-by-6-foot prison.
From now on I’ll use the stairs.
The management was quite apologetic about my ordeal. I told her I’m a writer and would have to write about this. I promised not to use any names. She just laughed and said, “Free publicity.” At any rate, she said they would treat me nice. She was true to her word. Later when I went to my room, this was waiting for me.
A few more pics from the trip. I’ve way too many to share. The lady with the two-towned hair and beautiful smile is my cousin Wendy who lives in Tel Aviv. Could’ve been the highest point of my trip. ❤ One of our missions as a humanitarian group was to take stuffed animals to hospitalized children. (will never forget the smiles).
