Debo let me borrow his extra large suitcase, which is a lifesaver. I can barely lift the thing, but I was able to get everything into one suitcase. I am willing to bet I'll have to fork over the $50 to American Airlines for the suitcase weighing over 50 pounds. The backpack will be a carry-on and also my bag for school.
I'm heading to the airport in about an hour. I leave DC at 8:45 pm and arrive in London tomorrow morning at 11:00 am. I'll be 5 hours ahead of EST while I am there.
My next post will be coming to you from England. Oxford, here I come!
