It did not matter how many pictures we took, there was always one more picture needed to be taken with my mother, especially together with Janice:
On August 10th, 1969. We finally boarded a Northwest flight back to the USA. At that time, we had to stop for refueling at Hawaii, and then Los Angeles and Chicago, before flying back to Urbana. As you can see, this fly-back was indeed quite a process. On the Northwest flight, we had a special place for Panpan. It was at the cost for 1/10 of a regular seat, to get this baby set-up in the front of our regular seats.
Since the stop at Hawaii was more than six hours, we hired a taxi to take us to a few places on the Island and to see the city of Oahu. It was truly a very pleasant stop-over.
