Hi girls, I hope you made it to Cairo after your adventures in Irkutsk.

Claire-Do you remember that game Memory that you used to play at birthday parties where the host brought out a tray of items and you you got 30 seconds to look at them and then write down as many of the items as you could remember? Well, you have to play that game again. Air France found your box in Paris, opened it and now need you to identfy some of the items in it before they will return it. They need brand names listed on or in the box (they mentioned Colgate?), clothing items (scarves?), gifts (wooden tray?). Send me a descriptive list. They also need to know how many total bags you checked in at Singapore.

here's a maybe-not-so-way-out suggestion: before you get on the plane, whip out your handy digital camera and take a photo of your baggage tags, making sure the numbers come out clearly.

you might also want to store soft copies of your passport (the photo page and any other visa pages) on your computer/ online in your emailbox, so that you can access these documents in case anything happens.

Some things in the box:

Six Nepali Masks

One package of impotant hotel documents on every hotel we've done a spotlight for. Including the copied Lonely Planet pages of Kenya. Wish we had those.

Lara's scarves

One Nok Airlines black tshirt that says, "I want to be a Jumbo Jet when I grow up"

One pair of glasses in a case.

Several bottles of Vitamin B/Zinc/Acidopholus

One Singaporean Eye Cream

One Mosquito Net
