The Virgin airlines war on photographers goes on.... They weighed my hand baggage twice once at check in once trying to get on the plane. Luckily the Virgin staff in Lagos could clearly see all the cameras could not possibly go in the hold which is more than can be said for their London Heathrow staff who argued that they should . But the bottom-line is there is no way a photographer can fly with Virgin and comply to their hand luggage weight restrictions my camera bag with nothing in it exceeds their maximum allowed weight . In London I had to take out all the cameras put them on their straps and put all the peripherals in my pockets... So the bag was expected to go on the plane empty...... er....... and me just hold the stuff or have it in my pockets ....... yeah nutz....

Anyway at Lagos airport....... I had some hassle with a checkpoint guy wanting to take my sunglasses... But hey u know what I am like ...with sunglasses........ . There is no way in this world I'm gonna casually give up my sunglasses....... even to an armed guy attempting to intimidate me into it ......... hehehehehe.......... :-))
