Well… I guess not….

Well….I thought I was leaving for London today. I got to the airport with 2 hours to spare. I was pleasantly surprised to find this really cool family of musicians who were doing a performance in the airport. I sat for about an hour listening to them play music with all kinds of instruments. They call their music “New Grass” (based on “Blue Grass”).

Anyways…. after they finished the music I went through security and was just waiting to board the plane and then this loud alarm goes off. I was thinking it was just some temporary alarm that someone would just turn off (false alarm)….but no…it was just blaring for about 5 minutes. Everyone is sitting there with hands covering their ears. After a few minutes…TSA (Security) tells us all that we have to evacuate from the Albuquerque airport and that there was some type of security breach. They have to clear the whole airport and make sure it is safe/secure. So…here I am with a mob of hundreds and hundreds of people slowly pouring out of the airport.

I only had an hour between my flight connection and there were no other options on other airlines…later on…..so flight missed. I’m reschedule now on the same flight tomorrow. My only consolation is that they gave me bulk head window seats…so hopefully I can stretch my legs. Luckily I have friends in ABQ to stay with (Espanola is 1.5 hours from the airport).

This morning I had a feeling something was going to happen. I don’t know what…but I had a weird feeling. Like I was saying good bye to Arjan and Narayan forever. I had a feeling I was going to miss my flight. So…who knows…maybe this is one of those things where something might have happened but Guruji covered for me.

Well…bottom line is I’m taken care of. Though I was going to have a day to recover from the traveling (jetlag)…but now I fly in Sunday…and drive 4.5 hours to Khalsa Camp…and have to jump right in. I’m sure I’ll be so tired. Who can sleep well on the plane?? (and UK is eight hours ahead). Well…the adventure will go on :)

    i’m sorry you won’t have time to recover. 4.5 hour car ride? ouch! set lot of alarms! :) but i guess your adrendalin will carry you once you meet the Sangat.

    Our prayers are with you!

    if it’s any more comfort my family and i had similar thing happened to us on our way to my wedding…:)
    my mom and dad slept at the connecting airport while i skipped the next flight and decided to go back home and sleep “in my own bed” and overslept (didn’t miss the wedding though) :)

    Sat Nam!

    Today I had a similar feeling in the morning. When I was leaving for a final exam I just felt like today was wrong…it didn’t feel right…my exam was unnecessarily difficult :P then on the way to the bank i was stuck in a flood caused by the tornado and thunderstorms that was passing thru Toronto…But I guess Guruji does cover for us…Great is our Guru :)…

    Oh btw Gurmustuk Singh Ji, Is there any plans to give the Toronto Sangat Your darshan?

    Waheguroooooo Ji ka khalsa Waheguroooo Ji Ki Fateh

    I travel with Guru Ji, so you can guess I get around pretty fast.


    No problem. Like I said, if you need anything, all you have to do is call, my home is your home.
