Back to Nepal

November 1
My flight was supposed to leave Munich at 9:50. I got to the airport at 7:50 and found out it had already been gone for 2 hours!! I'm so angry. I know it's important to confirm your flights -- but I couldn't figure out how I was supposed to confirm a flight on Qatar Air which has no office or phone number in Munich! The lady at the airport information desk said they should have informed all the passengers of the schedule change. I don't know what phone number they might have called -- maybe the Peace Corps office. They didn't email me.

I'm going to the Qatar Desk at the Lufthansa Office tomorrow morning to arrange a new flight. If they insist that I have to fly on Qatar Air, I might not arrive back in Kathmandu for a couple more days. I think the Qatar flight to Kathmandu from Doha is only a few times a week.

I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow morning. I'll write again to let you know as soon as I do.

Results from the Qatar Air office were what I expected. Their quickest option was to go through London, arriving in Kathmandu tomorrow afternoon. But they were going to charge me a lot of money to change the flight.

Instead, I'm taking the same flight I was supposed to take on Wednesday night - but the one leaving on Friday night. So, instead of arriving at 3:30 on Thursday, I should arrive at 3:30 on Saturday.

Not that bad I guess. It's just expensive to be staying in Munich when I'm ready to leave. Staying at the hostel two more nights isn't a problem.

Sorry I didn't write until now. I was sleeping for a long time. No problems with the flight, and I met a lot of friends in Kathmandu....

I'm at Satyam's house now looking at college websites. I'll write more when I can get to an email store and have time.....
