No AIM Air doesn’t lose people’s luggage.  Actually, we find luggage people have lost on the road, which might just make us unique in the aviation world.

We (Susan and the kids and I) drove to Nairobi yesterday and today (yes, two days to go about 300 miles by road).  Yesterday, we were just north of Barsaloi, coming to a lugga (dry river) crossing and saw a black computer case in the road. Hmmm, most unusual.  So I stopped, got out, got it and we went on.  Meanwhile Susan looked inside to see if there were any ID so we could turn it into the police in Maralal, our stop for the night.  She found a folder of stuff with AIC Gatab Health Center on it.  What?!?!  And some tax paperwork with Employer:  Job Learamo (Job is the pastor at Gatab and is also the hospital administrator).  What again!

So we called Job as soon as we got in telephone coverage on the outskirts of Maralal.  Alex had lost it Friday night on his way from Nairobi to Gatab and was going with Jeff Heidorn to South Horr to make a police report.  So Job called Jeff so no police report, and we’ll bring suitcase with us to Gatab next week when we go back.

God must have blinded everyone to the bag in the road until we came through.  It sat in the road for a night and a day and a half a day…. anyway, we FIND luggage.

    […] When we were in Gatab, we found luggage in the middle of the desert.  We were driving from Gatab down to Nairobi and spotted a little laptop case in the middle of a lugga, a dry river bed.  I wrote about it here: http://jsmundy.aimsites.org/2008/12/08/lost-luggage/ . […]
