After a fun filled day of air travel on August 10th, we are back home from visiting our son in beautiful British Columbia. We had to put up with slightly longer lines at security and visibly armed guards (which we Canadians are not used to) but felt extremely lucky to be travelling within the country.
The international queues were insane! I now know the lengths to which some people will go in order to keep their toiletries in their carry on. I saw a guy being hauled away because he wouldn't give up his shaving foam...and he was yelling that security wasn't being reasonable :rolleyes: Old women were swearing like troopers as they desperately applied one last coat of lipstick before they tossed the tube into a bin with a force powerful enough to blow them up if they did indeed contain anything explosive.
All in all it was a very interesting day to be at the airport...although it might not have seemed so if I owned cosmetics
