Good Morning Diego Garcia

by Susan Joyce

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: travel adventure/memoir

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

When Susan and Charles receive a letter from Cyprus friends, now in Taiwan, they get a chance to help crew a sailboat from Sri Lanka across the Indian Ocean. They have no clue what to expect. Susan reminds Charles she isn’t a good swimmer. He tells her a life jacket will do the trick, and convinces her it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. A must-do travel adventure. They say goodbye to friends and family in sunny California, fly to New York and on to India, arriving the day the Indian government has issued a state of emergency. And then onto the boat, and into the ocean. In monsoon season. With no charts.

In this true-life travel adventure, Susan keeps a journal and record her bizarre thoughts and telling dreams. A real life thriller, Susan’s monsoon-season journey is about discovery and spiritual realization—one dream at a time.

EXCERPT:

 

Ch 2

Downward, we dove through a dark blanket of clouds. All belted in for a smooth landing.

 

As we neared the ground, the clouds cleared. We crossed a crowded expressway with bumper to bumper afternoon traffic. I could see passengers sitting in cars waiting to move forward. Touchdown was seconds away.

 

Without warning, the craft groaned and shuddered. Flaps shifted. Engines roared. In an instant the aircraft pitched sharply and climbed skyward with great speed.

 

Items tumbled from overhead bins as the plane shook violently in midair.

 

I gripped Charles’s arm.

 

The plane made a sharp turn to the left and the ground fell away.

 

Below us, I saw a huge orange ball of fire erupting on the runway.

 

“Oh my God,” I said, gripping Charles’s arm tighter.

 

The fire sent black smoke billowing into the air above a twisted, burning plane.

 

“No survivors there,” Charles said, craning his neck to see what was happening on the ground.

 

A few minutes later, the sound system crackled and the captain announced, “As you’re aware folks, we’ve had to abandon our final approach to land on runway 221. We’re lucky to have missed a major disaster. Eastern Air Lines Flight 66, a Boeing 727, was struck by lightning on its final approach to JFK,” his voice cracked, “and has crashed on the runway. Eastern was the plane landing in front of us. If we had arrived a split second before the Eastern plane, ours would have been the plane struck. We’re lucky to have been second on the approach path.”
