Hurray, we've landed in Melbourne! We're in Australia! We've crossed the international date line and the equator. And our luggage made it with us. Considering the mess in Cleveland as we switched from one flight to another, to another, it was a concern that the check-on baggage wouldn't make it, but it did. We are extremely pleased! Customs was so busy that they started letting people through by just asking, “Are you bringing in any food?” With an answer of “no” we were on our way.
