After spending a beautiful day with my daughter, sister and a friend on the polo field last Thursday playing in a girls’ tournament, I rushed home to take a shower and grab my suitcase. A mad dash to the airport ensued so I could catch the evening flight to New York City. That’s where I was headed to work on a fun project over a quick weekend stay (which I’ll spill about soon).
Discovering New Places
I had the best time there during this quick-as-lightening trip. One reason is that I got to discover some new places, such as Brooklyn, which I don’t get to visit as often as I’d like. My beautiful five-month-old Canon camera was constantly in hand.
Sadly, as I slept on the plane returning to Argentina someone went into my carry-on bag, which was stored in the overhead bin of the plane, and took the camera. The thief even nabbed the chocolate bunnies and eggs I had bought for my kids for our family Easter egg hunt. Can you believe it?
Material things can almost always be replaced. What can’t be replaced are the photos I had stored on the camera. A few of them I had, thankfully, already transferred via the camera’s WiFi to my phone, a function that I highly valued in the Canon. It allowed me to immediately share beautiful-quality pictures. Another reason it was such a great camera was its rather small size. I could many times fit it in my purse, depending on the lens that I had attached.
So, a trip that was supposed to be happy and easy had a very sour end last night, I am sad to say.
Advice: lock your carry-on bag. At least you will be putting some type of barrier in place for a potential thief on a plane.
