There aren't many seats available to sit down. There's an empty seat next to an elderly-looking couple.
They are originally from Ghana, but live in Canada. They are of Indian origin.
A few minutes later we hear that our flight is delayed. Honestly, I hope the flight is canceled so I can spend one more night in Egypt!
The couple talks to me about many things. They tell me about their sons. One is married with children, while the younger one is a lawyer and unmarried...with no intention to get married any time soon.
They ask me about my family so I show them a photo of our awesome foursome. The lady asks if my mum wears a sari everyday. I tell her no.
My mum calls. I say "Hello mummy" and I know that the lady notices I call her mummy!
We go through to our boarding and at the security check, I beep - as I always do.
The guy security guard says to me with a cheesy smile, "I'll do a body deck after her" (female security guard)
We go through and we're given a roll, a slice of cake and a bottle of water while we wait.
The kind man gives me his piece of cake because there's chicken on the roll and I don't eat it.
We think the weather in Istanbul is causing our flight delay, but no one's certain. Some people are starting to panic because they'll be missing their connecting flight.
I send a message to Zidan telling him my flight's delayed. He calls to apologize even though it's not his fault at all! He says he'll be coming to the airport again and will try to see if they allow him to my boarding gate.
A few minutes later, a queue firms and we are ready to board. I call Zee one last time to tell him we are leaving.
