I always leave something important behind when I go on a trip. Yesterday I forgot to pack the battery charger for my Canon Powershot Elph 110S. We all know that iPhone 5 cameras deliver better-than-decent photos, but they don’t have a wide-angle lens. I feel I can’t do Vietnam without the Elph, so I’ve decided to walk three miles (for the exercise and scenery) down the Nimitz highway to the nearest Best Buy and see about a battery charger.

I’ll cab back and be off to the airport by 11 am. Tokyo flight leaves at 1 pm. Many, many hours of fuselage hell await.
