"The little engine that starts the main engines seems to be malfunctioning," Our Pilot told us. "It has no bearing on safety and we'll just get a little help from the ground crew."
Mostly what I thought was ...has no bearing on safety? The aircraft is broken. How can that have no bearing on safety?
Actually the pilot was right. We waited about twenty minutes and then a compressor truck turned up to bump-start the engines and after that the flight was fine.
As was the week in Poland. The weather was cold, we had snow over the weekend, and the party we had to celebrate Bogna's parents' fiftieth anniversary was really very good. Everyone had a happy time.
