Day 28 - Leaving on a Jet Plane (But Not This One)
The day began at 5:00 a.m. After showers, my cousin drove us to LAX for our first (4.5-hour) flight. Although we had a 6.5-hour layover in Miami, Nick didn't want to leave the airport, so I didn't get to take a pretty South Beach sunset shot like I'd hoped. With some very lucky timing, however, I snapped this picture of a plane taking off. I'm honestly not sure if the dark spots are the exhaust from the jet fuel or just smudges on the window I was shooting thorugh. Let's pretend it's the former. At 11:00 p.m. we boarded our overnight (9.5-hour) flight to Montevideo, Uruguay.
