So Russ.... was the gift well received?

Such a great story to watch....

Reminds me of an experience several years ago.... my best friend and I took a road trip from Virginia to Tennessee to New Orleans for the final four in basketball. He was dating a woman with a young girl and she gave him a bear to carry on the trip. We made it the bear's roadtrip to the Final Four... and took pictures all along the way. Some of my favorites were pictures at Spacecamp in Alabama, pictures behind the glass at Krispy Kreme, and at the Final Four with Dick Vitale.... that kid had a blast watching the bear have these adventures.

I am sure you made someone very happy.

Well, we have to wait till we see newer pictures.

If the cousin's smile is bigger than JerseyVics' (while holding the Koala), we'll know mission accomplished.

Smile koala companion

Would not want to side next to--in any cabin--someone hugging koala on lap.

I think it is going to intrude on my space.

I note--the passenger/OP never mentioned adjacent PX...only upsetting the flight attendant. Who cares about the FA?

Just annoying.

My goal is to get someone to take a pic of me with the FT Koala on one of the canal bridges... not sure IF I'll build up enough courage or find an english speaker... I wonder what the proper jeer phrase is in dutch that I should be anticipating?... lol stay tuned... --Russ
Well, my suggestion is to take the photos and use one of them for the FREE KLM BAG TAGS AND PHOTO CONTEST, as found in this S.P.A.M. thread:
Promo is at http://baggagelabel.klm.com
-- canal picture or otherwise.

-- Then get two more made (same or different pictures) for every email account you own.

All of these get me thinking this was all just a furry "Flat Stanley" exercise!

Thanks for sharing the pix!

Did you request a special meal for your Koala?
