I tell you what, it’s like a movie, it’s like a movie. […] Got up early and prepared to go, but then when I went outside to the taxi stand, there were two taxis standing there. […] And then the first taxi driver came. I said, “Oh, please take me to the airport.” She said, “No, I don’t have time!” It said “Free”, but “I don’t have time. I have to go now. […] The other one’s coming.” I’d been waiting another half an hour, and the other guy came in. “I don’t have time. I must go.” […] So, I was late for the first plane. I booked [a] second plane. It took many hours. Waiting. And when the plane arrived, they said, “Sorry, ladies and gentleman. Ladies, gentlemen... Ladies and gentlemen, the airplane is not leaving yet, because something is not in order.” […]

Hallo! How are you? I just came to say hallo. And I have to go take a shower because I think I smell something. I don’t know whom. I’ve been traveling for two days – two days on the road. (Wow.) Different cities and dusty. Train station and so on. You know, trains and stuff. A little bit tired. But we see each other. (Yes.) I was supposed to come yesterday, but I could not. I’ll tell you later. I was supposed to come yesterday and wait for you. Open the door and say, “Welcome, madame! Welcome, monsieur! (gentlemen!)” But I could not. First, in the morning I went to…. I took a Lufthansa (flight), and then I could not go. I missed it because there was no taxi. And then… Share it, not put it in your pocket. I love you guys. “I hate you. Terrible people!”

I tell you what, it’s like a movie, it’s like a movie. I went in the morning, early. Got up early and prepared to go, but then when I went outside to the taxi stand, there were two taxis standing there. And nobody... Excuse me. I look good? (Always good.) No bathing, no washing, nothing, for two days, actually. But never mind, I’ll come back soon. And at the taxi stand, there were two taxis empty. Empty. And it said “Free.” Free. And then I didn’t see the taxi driver, and I called the company. They said, “Oh, you wait there. They’ll come. They just drink coffee somewhere.” So I went all over because I was in a hurry, time to go to the Flughafen (airport), the airport. So I went to every coffee stand and looked and I said, “Taxi driver? Taxi driver? Taxi driver?” Nobody said anything. No. And then I called again. They said, “You wait there. He’ll come!” OK, I waited.

And then the first taxi driver came. I said, “Oh, please take me to the airport.” She said, “No, I don’t have time!” It said “Free”, but “I don’t have time. I have to go now.” So she drove, zip, went like that. She said, “You wait here. The other one’s coming.” I’d been waiting another half an hour, and the other guy came in. “I don’t have time. I must go.” He also drove away. Had an appointment somewhere. And I called the taxi company to please send another, but they didn’t answer anymore. The first one, they said don’t have taxis, and second time, third time, fourth time, ten times, they didn’t answer because they know they don’t have any more taxis. It’s a small place where I live, it’s not like you have a choice like London or Paris or something like that. No choice. Just one taxi company. And so even if you kneel on the floor and beg them, if they don’t have, they don’t have.

So, I was late for the first plane. I booked [a] second plane. It took many hours. Waiting. And when the plane arrived, they said, “Sorry, ladies and gentleman. Ladies, gentlemen... Ladies and gentlemen, the airplane is not leaving yet, because something is not in order.” (Oh, no.) Mechanical problem. “We are repairing [it], and as soon as it’s OK, we’ll tell you.” Fine. But at first, they changed the gate. They made you wait at one gate for a long time and nothing happened. And then you went and asked, they said, “Oh no, you go over there.” And then went over there. The plane didn’t go because [it was] kaput. And they repaired, repaired, repaired! Many hours.

And I said, “OK, I’m not waiting anymore. I have to go. I have ‘children’ waiting. I’m going.” I already had a boarding pass, but I went outside to another counter to try to buy another ticket to go on another airplane. And then the moment I went to the counter and said I wanted a ticket, they announced, “Oh, your airplane is ready.” To Vienna. First one [flew] to Vienna. Fine. So, of course, I didn’t buy. I ran back inside. And went through the checkpoint again. Oh, the cream, water, tiger balm, all had to throw (away). They said, “You must put it in a bag.” I said, “Oh, I don’t have time [or] have a bag.” I said, “OK. I throw it all out.” So I don’t have anything. Hand cream, everything, I had to throw away because I [didn’t] have time to go and get the bag or show it to them. I didn’t have time. I must go. The plane was leaving. Ran inside. You know what? I got on the plane, everybody was happy, finally, we’re going.

Half an hour later in the air, they said, “Sorry, madame, monsieur. Ladies and gentlemen, the aircraft is out of order. The airplane has a mechanical problem. The pressure in the airplane is no good.” It was getting hot, like the airplane was burning or something. We had to return to that airport, where we came from. OK, return. Fine. But the airplane was getting hotter and hotter. Return. And when they returned next to the airport, they said, “Sorry, the airport is closed, bad weather.” We had to go find some other airport. We went to [an]other airport. “Oh, sorry, we don’t have a (Runway.) flyway free.” Because every other airplane also went there. Because the other airport was closed. Suddenly, because of bad weather, it changed suddenly. Just half an hour later, everything changed. So, they closed the whole airport, big airport and everything. And the extra airport, everything closed. So every airplane that was already in the air, all going and landing next to the extra airport, wherever they can.

So we circled, circled, circled. And, you know, this airplane was very small. I think it’s only one hour from there to Vienna from that airport. So if they circled any further, I don’t think they’d have any more fuel left. That’s the problem. Everybody was so scared, because we went already half an hour, and we came back, half an hour. That’s one hour already. And that airplane was supposed to carry passengers only for a one-hour period. Maybe they had a little bit more extra (fuel), but I don’t know how much extra. Mostly if they don’t need it, they don’t put a full tank, so they can take more cargo, and passengers. So they kept circling, circling, while everybody was sweating, because the airplane was hot, and they were all so scared. And the children were screaming, crying, because they underst[ood] what was going on. And all the people were just clinging to the chairs. I could see their toes were digging into the carpet, like this. I said, “Never mind. Just pray. Nothing much we can do.” So they were praying alright, but everybody was so scared because it circled too long. They were so scared. In case we could not land, what to do? You know what I mean?

Do you remember the joke? No, you don’t. I’ll tell you. Four old women, like me, go on an airplane for the first time, and then suddenly the pilot says, “Sorry, one of our engines is kaput. So we probably will have a one hour delay for landing. Sorry about that.” OK. No problem. Another half an hour later, the pilot says again, “Sorry. Another engine is kaput.” There are four engines. “Another engine’s kaput, so we’ll be one more hour delayed. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’ll get there.” OK, fine. Another half an hour. He says, “Another engine kaput! Now we have only one engine left, so we’ll be two or three hours delayed. Sorry for the inconvenience.” So one of the old ladies said to the other, “If there is one more engine kaput, then we’ll stay in here forever!” In the air! That’s what I was thinking yesterday. So I was laughing, and nobody underst[ood] a thing. What kind of thing – to laugh at this situation? So I kept quiet. I laughed myself. I was thinking, “I don’t know how many engines they have. Maybe one’s kaput already, if another one kaput, then that’s it. We stay there forever in the air.” And you can just stay here, enjoy the See (lake) and everything. One person less.

OK. I’ll see you later. (Yes. Thank You, Master.) It’s too hot here, huh? (It’s OK.) It’s too hot. (It’s worth it to see You, Master.) OK. Fine. I know, but I don’t have a bigger room. Anybody who knows a carpenter’s job? (Yes, Master.) OK, come. (Take the glass off?) Yeah. Take the glass off or make it ...flexible, so we can open and close. (Yes. We can put some timber and make it closed?) No, not closed! What? (Timber that we can open?) No, no, no. We need the glass. I don’t like glass on top, so you can either put back the glass [or] if it’s difficult, you just buy plastic. OK? (Yes.) Clear plastic and thicker. (Perspex.) Yeah. And then you make a hinge. (Ah, I can make those.) And then it will open, close, open, close. I want it clear, (Yes.) not wood because we need the sunlight also. (Yes.) And when we want, we can tape it. (Yes.) Or you make both wood, and... (Both.) Yes, and then when we want light, we open. [When] we don’t want light, we close. OK? See you later. No rush. After their rest or something, you do it. OK? And very quickly. OK? (Yes.)

(Vegan) candy for kids behind there. You want any more? Anybody who [doesn’t] have? Somebody doesn’t have? (Me.) You’re cheating me. Share it. Share it, OK? Share it! Share. I will be here for a few days so you’ll have more, don’t worry about it. Share, share, share. (Thank You.) After many taxis and many trains, I’m very tired, but I’ll see you later. (Yes.) [I] must go take a shower. See you.
