Better Late than Never

"Welcome to Lima, Peru. The local time is 5:35 AM and the temperature is 36 degrees. Your may claim your checked luggage from the American Airlines luggage office in the Denver International Airport in three weeks. Thank you for flying Delta."

The major blot on our trip to Peru was that our one checked bag, containing nearly all of Wendy's clothes, never showed up. We tried to chase it down but never succeeded. After we got back to the US, still sin equipaje, we pretty much gave up on ever seeing it again.

Lo and behold it actually materialized from the airline aether, three weeks to the day after we first checked it in. It's not even much worse for wear, and, even more amazing, appears to have everything in it.

Better late than never.
