Good-bye Varig

Posted by in Personal Travails

Varig PlaneSo two days before svetla and i are leaving for europe i get a call from my travel agent in vancouver telling me that varig, the airline i booked with to go from london to sao paulo with on august 6th, has gone belly-up. ticketes may be refunded, so hopefully i get my $2,000 back, but needless to say, i’m worried that i may not make the conference (visible evidence XIII) to give my breathtaking presentation on activist documentary and emerging social and IT networks. oh the troubles of the academic elite/white privileged globe trotters. and you thought YOU had problems.
