Con Miedo a Perder el Equipaje

Pocas veces me topo con pasajeros que despiertan en mí la ternura, pero cuando lo hago no sólo lo agradezco sino que también me siento lo suficientemente inspirada como para reseñarlos, tal vez por aquella parte de mí misma a la que me recuerdan cuando me plantean situaciones llenas de inocencia.

Hace poco más de una semana facturábamos dos vuelos por separado (hago la acotación porque muchas veces solemos trabajar con facturaciones simultáneas; o lo que es lo mismo, facturamos varios vuelos a la vez) y me llega uno a preguntar que si podía facturar ya para MAN (Manchester).

Is it knowledge, suffering, love, tolerance, existence, unhappiness, joy, development, growth? All of these and many more terms could be used to convey the same idea of life, but just as everything else in this world, the definition of life is relative, and it depends greatly on the meaning people give to it as well as their point of view and experience.
