I started watching this movie, but never finished it, on my way to Holland.
So, finished it on my way back to the Bahamas.
Had me in tears, mostly, because the main actor reminds me of my dad.
He has the same heart, values and approach to life.
He always aims for the right, no matter the situation and no matter if those around him
use the “wrong” ways to bring him down.
It’s a great insight into the struggles of illegal immigrants and, as the name states, their fight for “A Better Life.”
I always watch Cadência just so I can get the sounds of Brazilian Portuguese in my ears.
I’ll be sad once they take the movie off of the Continental Airlines playlist.
However, I will be DELIGHTED once they finally CHANGE the movies!
A beautiful documentary. Watch it!
I sat next to a Friezen from Friesland in north Holland.
Cute, sweet older lady flying to New Jersey to spend time with her kids and grand kids.
Was really cool getting to know about her little community.
I left the hotel at 6AM (been up all night, so no sleep) and finally arrived home at 10PM.
(which would be +6 so, 4AM Holland time)
That’s almost 24 hours off travel time!
AFTER ALL the flights and layovers, I get on my puddle jumper for my 45 min flight to Freeport.
As the pilot announced our decent, we hit a pocket of turbulence and dropped.
I was like, “God, you MUST be kidding me. I know you didn’t make me travel
ALL this way just to kill me 15 mins before my FINAL destination.”
It got me thinking of a “death pill.”
Something you can take, incase you’re REALLY in a plane crash situation.
I’d like one.
Whenever I fly, I accept that there’s a chance, it’ll be my last flight.
I accept death quite easily, it’s the pain/discomfort that I don’t like.
If they made a “death pill” there’s obviously room for abuse. Unfortunately, cuz people suck.
If we were ever to have one though, I was thinking, everyone should get ONE in their lifetime attached to a social security type number of sorts so it can be tracked incase it was used to kill someone else.
There. Just things that go through my mind.
Brain’s not functioning today.
Slept for most of the day again.
Holland, I slept too little, here I sleep TOO much.
