All day was rocky today. No one wanted to leave Haiti. And apparently Haiti didn’t want us to leave.

Our flight to Fort Lauderdale was good, but the trouble started soon after landing. Our flight to Dallas kept getting pushed back. A 2:55 flight left at 5:30. Our other half left at 6:20. They won’t make the connecting flight.

Or will they?

We got to the airport with minutes to spare. Soon after, we got a text from our other group saying they’d landed. They landed a good 25 minutes early. Panicking, we ran to the gate agent. She said if they could make it, they could get on. The flight kept getting delayed due to crew having not arrived, so we got lucky.

All that matters now though is we’re all together on the same flight heading home.
