Taken to the Cleaners
Uh oh.

So we're supposed to leave for our honeymoon tomorrow night late - like, 2:30 am - so in about 29 1/2 hours. And earlier today we realized that Liz washed her passport.

See, since we lost our luggage coming from Gatwick, and only had the clothes on our backs for the most part (well, me for the entire part) we threw our laundry in last night after showers.

And, since we weren't allowed carry-ons coming from Gatwick, we had our tickets and passports in our pockets. This is, apparently, not Liz's routine, and since we were so tired when we went to bed, she just threw everything into the wash.

I found the remnants of the passport this morning when I put the clothes into the dryer.


We called the US Embassy, but their passport people only work from 8:30 am to noon.

Tomorrow we're getting up early and going over there to talk to someone. By then it'll be only 16 1/2 hours until our honeymoon flight ...

Uh oh.
