A few weeks ago I attended a veterinary conference in Seattle; the day after the end of the conference, at six o’clock in the morning, I got to check in my luggage to fly a total of 15 hours to Barcelona.
But the flight was delayed a few hours and the company decided to send passengers to an airport hotel until the new start 24 hours later.
At first I was angry; then, I realized it was better to use this extra- time (for once I had time!) So I decided to visit the flight museum in Seattle. Actually, I did not have enough time the day before to go visiting it…
So what has all this in common with bats? you may ask…
