it's official...

i was stunned to find 2 distinct white chalk crosses on my suitcase as my bag tumbled out of the carousel at the Airport.



as far as i could see, only my bag had these crosses.

i groaned to Leen saying, i hope that's not a mark to ensure that my bag gets checked at customs. maybe they saw something in the scans and were interested to find out what i had hidden in my bag? i was carrying a ridiculous amount of goodies for the training programme we're conducting here.

sure enough. i was stopped. the officer asked me to open my bag. i passed him my passport, and just as i was lifting my suitcase up. he told me it was no longer necessary.

Lynn whispered later, 'They changed their mind when they saw that you were holding an official passport. Prob didn't want any trouble'.

*Phew*

Hey Eva, the crosses are a sign that you have an electrical appliance in your suitcase. They x-ray all the bags before putting on the luggage belt. I speak from personal experience, lol. And yes, having an official passport helps.
