Yak attack!

Well, almost…

The British Merlin pilots who rescued us from a five-hour bus ride made our short trip even better by inviting us to sit, two at a time, on the lowered back ramp of the craft while in flight, giving us some spectacular aerial views of the countryside. And almost as soon as I took my position there the saucy pilots decided to pull some fancy flying maneuvers. I was doing fine until I made my way back into my seat, or more accurately, was slammed into it while the helicopter started a sudden and rapid climb.

A wave of nausea came pouring over me, but unlike two other unlucky passengers I wasn’t able to make a deposit into the barf bag handed to me. The queasiness stayed with me, though, and had to be slept off. I’m definitely not Air Force material…
