Three weeks later most of the Lions journeyed from the corners
of Indiana to Indianapolis for the long trip over. Each carried
a large box of glasses as their second check-in bag. Autorefractors
were also checked for the transatlantic flight.
In Fort Wayne
the group of five volunteers gathered with additional supplies for
the school and the community.
Our two wonderful
doctors from Monterrey, Mexico, Carlos Gutierrez and Marco Barrera
arrived at their airport to join in the effort. Our first major
problem was about to occur.
It turned out
that our travel agency did not listen carefully to the ticket requests
of our Mexican doctors and issued tickets for flights originating
in the California Monterey, not its Mexican namesake.
happily, later that day we all gathered together in Detroit, doctors
included, and boarded a KLM flight for Amsterdam and Bucuresti.
The airport was
a busy. Friends from Bucuresti helped us collect all but a few "lost"
bags and then we boarded our bus. The missing bags delayed us an hour,
but we finally started north through the city toward the multi-lane
highway leading toward Pitesti and Sibiu. The Joyces and the
Clesters started the ground leg of the trip wondering when they
would see their luggage.
