I bet a smart thief knows the smallest bag has the most valuables, I mused, rearranging my luggage so my smallest bag wasn’t within snatching distance from anyone who might sneak up behind me. In it was my computer, camera, and canvas case where I carried my passport, e-ticket, credit cards, licenses and other important documents.
I wasn’t even supposed to be at the airport, except that I had misread my itinerary, thinking my flight was in the morning. I was so eager to be on my way, so looking forward to seeing my family and spending a long-awaited annersary on the coast with Jose. Now I was waiting for our driver to take me back to the guest house to await my evening flight.
