長時間のフライトの後、ようやく到着した滞在先で娘が泣き出した。
大事に抱えていたはずのバッグをどこかに忘れてきてしまったらしい。
時差で寝不足、朦朧とした頭で記憶をたどっていく。
確か、空港ではまだ持っていたはず。
となると、空港から乗ったバスの中に違いない。
バス会社に電話をするにも、すでに営業時間が終了してしまっていた。
「あの子がいないと、寝られないの」としくしく泣く娘をなだめながら、眠れぬ夜を過ごした。

翌早朝からまた捜索開始。
そして数時間後、奇跡的にこの子が娘のもとに帰ってきた。
実は公共の場所でこの子をなくしたのは二度目だった。
何度洗濯しても手垢で薄汚れてヨレヨレの姿。
ゴミ同然に処分されていても仕方ないと思えたのに、きちんと手元に戻ってくる奇跡。
やっぱりこの国は素晴らしい。

After a long flight, my daughter started crying at the hotel where we had
finally arrived.
She had been forgotten her bag somewhere that she should have been
having carefully.
With lack of sleep in the time difference and I was going down the memory
in the weak brain.
Indeed, she had have it at the airport.
When it comes, there is no difference in the bus ride from the airport.
I made a phone call to the bus company, but the operating hours had been t
erminated already.
We spent a sleepless night while soothing the daughter cry griping "I can't
sleep without the kitty cat."

We started to search from early morning next day.
And a few hours later, this child was back under the daughter
miraculously.
Actually, it was the second time that she lost this one in public places.
The appearance was shabby bit dirty with finger marks after many washes.
Even if it might be disposed of garbage as good, the coming back at hand
properly was the miracle.
After all, this country is so great.
