Everything is conspiring against my catching a plane for Berlin : 1) My students have given me bulky presents to take with me - that's extra baggage charges when I only intended taking hand luggage. 2) I am already one hour late and can't work out how to get into the airport. 3) It takes me ages to find my ticket. Eventually I fish it out of the bottom of my purse - a tiny scrap of newspaper. And 4) I have forgotten Thomas' telephone number in Berlin and he has no idea I am coming today. Where will I stay?
